Defending Self-Defense: A Call to Action by Survived & Punished

March 3 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Date: Thursday, March 3, 2022
Time: 3:00-4:30PM PST
Location: Online/Zoom (RSVP details forthcoming)

Survivors of domestic and sexual violence who defend themselves are systemically targeted for punishment by the legal system. Join us for the launch of Defending Self-Defense, a community-based, survivor-centered research report that identifies key patterns in the criminalization of self-defense and recommendations to transform the conditions of criminalized survival.

This report is produced by Survived & Punished, Project Nia, and the UCLA Center for the Study of Women.
