The Center on Gender Justice & Opportunity at Georgetown Law and Rights4Girls are delighted to invite you to a special event in the new year that discusses girls’ paths into the justice system as a result of experiencing gender-based violence as outlined in our co-authored report, Criminalized Survivors: Today’s Abuse to Prison Pipeline for Girls.
We’re honored to convene a panel of experts who will bring real-world experience and legal perspectives to the discussion, and we’re honored to have the Georgetown Journal on Gender and the Law as a co-sponsor of the event.
The panel will take place on Wednesday, January 24, 12:30 p.m. at Gewirz Student Center. Please mark your calendars and reserve your seat!
