    Where Everybody Knows Your Name: Protecting Survivors’ Privacy in Rural Areas

    *Speakers: Jessica Mindlin and Carol Schrader, the Victim Rights Law Center.

    How does your work in rural programs impact confidentiality? What information from survivors are you legally required to keep confidential? When may you share that information? The Victim Rights Law Center (VRLC) will help you navigate the complex requirements and best practices for protecting rural survivors’ privacy rights through this interactive webinar. This webinar will focus on rights related to confidentiality and privilege, mandatory reporting, and practical solutions. VRLC’s Privacy Rights Project gives OVW grantees the tools, resources, training, outreach, and education they need to identify and protect sexual assault, dating and domestic violence, and stalking survivors’ privacy rights. Attend this webinar to learn more about victim’ rights and how VRLC can help you with your work on behalf of survivors.
