In July of 2013, House Bill 2779 was approved in the Oregon state legislature, authorizing the issuance of a new protective order for victims of sexual assault. This new resource has the potential to be a powerful tool in establishing safety for survivors of sexual violence, but are you ready to answer questions about the SAPO and assist others in understanding how it will work?
This training will focus on sharing the pertinent details necessary to understanding how the SAPO will function, including who is eligible, when and how to apply, and how to talk about the potential pros and cons of a SAPO with survivors. Join us to get the facts and be prepared when the SAPO goes live on January 1st, 2014.
