“The language used to talk about sexual violence can have profound impacts on how people understand victims’ experiences and the impacts of these crimes. Word choice can effect hearings, trials, and protection order petitions. This webinar will: identify how language choices can impact outcomes in sexual assault cases, increase participants’ knowledge of how language shapes perception and show how appropriate language can lead to greater justice in cases of sexual violence.”
