In August, join us for:

Privacy, Confidentiality and Privilege: What Every VAWA-funded Entity Needs to Know:  Tuesday, August 3, 2021 | 11:00 am CDT. Are verbal releases allowed? Do we need a release to share information between different units of the same organization? May a minor sign a release? Does state advocate privilege law apply in tribal court? Come learn the answers to these and other VAWA privacy-related questions. We will review the elements of VAWA confidentiality, discuss who they cover, untangle mandatory reporting laws, and review the newest federal privacy provisions that apply to OVW grantees. The webinar will include case scenarios, issue spotting, and reflective exercises. Bring your questions, concerns and confusion; let’s sort them out together! Presented by Jessica Mindlin, Victim Rights Law Center.
