Featuring Dr. Jamila Stockman and Professors Leigh Goodmark and Charisa Smith 

This event is approved for 1.0 hours of Minimum Continuing Legal Education Credit by the State Bar of California. UCI School of Law is a State Bar-approved MCLE provider.

How can gender-based violence remedies advance beyond the carceral system? Global movements against racism, calls to defund the police and reimagine public safety, and the collective focus on community aid during COVID-19 present opportunities to create and expand alternatives to carceral responses to gender-based violence. Experts in public health, juvenile justice, restorative justice, and economic justice present their visions during this session.
