Prosecutors' Resource on Violence Against Women

The Association of Prosecuting Attorneys has partnered with AEquitas and the Office on Violence Against Women to create the Prosecutors' Resource on Violence Against Women to encourage prosecutors throughout the country to build strong partnerships with their law enforcement, medical, and victim advocacy organizations to achieve justice for victims within the communities they serve. The mission is to (1) enhance the quality of justice in sexual violence, intimate partner violence, stalking, and human trafficking cases by developing, evaluating, and refining prosecution practices that increase victim safety and offender accountability, and (2) provide prosecutors with the support, training, mentorship, and resources necessary to objectively evaluate and constantly reexamine and refine their approach to justice in cases involving violence against women.
