Webinar: Legal Action of Wisconsin’s Victim Rights Project – Elevating Victims’ Voices in the Courts

Thursday, January 24, 2019 10:00 am - 11:15 am

“We’re arguing that crime victims have standing to speak their own voice and make their own arguments. Courts are interested. These are not arguments they’ve heard…We have helped clients defend their private records, make their voices heard at sentencing, secure safe housing, and address other legal problems that grow out of or compound the trauma of experiencing a crime.”

Supervisor, Victim Rights Project


Join us to learn from Legal Action of Wisconsin Attorney Rachel Sattler and Wisconsin Judicare Attorney Amanda Rabe about their Victim Rights Project! This new project aims to help those who have survived crimes, particularly domestic violence and sexual assault. The pilot project began in fall 2017 with funding and support from the Wisconsin Department of Justice’s Office of Crime Victim Services. Now, thanks to a partnership with Wisconsin Judicare, the services are available statewide. Together, we will learn about the background of the project, and we’ll discuss what types of cases and clients the project can accept. We will also share information about how best to refer clients to the project.
