This webinar will use key findings from our report, The Sexual Abuse to Prison Pipeline: The Girls’ Story, to: 1) examine the ways that experiences of gendered violence create pathways for girls into the juvenile justice system, 2) examine how social attitudes towards girls, especially girls of color and LGBTQ girls, contribute to their being criminalized for their own abuse, 3) identify strategies to develop survivor-centered, culturally-competent, trauma-informed approaches to address the needs of justice-involved girls. We will discuss how girls are often criminalized for experiencing sexual violence, with particular focus on the criminalization of survivors of domestic child sex trafficking. The webinar will be delivered with an intersectional lens that emphasizes the need for a culturally competent approach to juvenile justice research, advocacy, and practices that centers girls of color, LGBTQ girls and GNC youth at the core of any juvenile justice reform efforts.
