SHARPP SAAM Film Screening & Discussion: Rape Myths on Trial
Tuesday, April 13 | 3pm | Registration link

Join SHARPP for #SexualAssaultAwarenessMonth where they will be screening a filmed presentation by Anne Munch, a career prosecutor and advocate for victims of gender violence. In this presentation Anne examines how cultural attitudes shape the outcomes of sexual assault cases. Drawing on years of experience prosecuting sex crimes, Munch shows how rape cases often turn on the involvement of an "unnamed conspirator" -- the complex of myths and stories we tell ourselves as a culture about sex, gender, power, and responsibility. Using examples from real cases, and harrowing evidence from actual 911 calls, Munch reveals how the assumptions that juries bring into the courtroom often stack the odds against victims, and at the same time challenges us to think critically about how our own assumptions might unintentionally reinforce victim-blaming. The result is a stunning look inside our criminal justice system and an incisive analysis of American culture's warped views of sexuality.

After the screening engage with SHARPP staff for a facilitated discussion diving deeper into the themes of Anne's presentation.

Direct Action for Incarcerated Survivors: Letter Writing
Friday, April 23 | 2pm | Registration link

Survivors of interpersonal violence, especially BIPOC survivors, are often criminalized by our justice system for defending themselves against abuse & assault. Letter writing is a form of harm reduction for these survivors, and receiving a letter of support can serve as a lifeline for some who are incarcerated. Join SHARPP's Direct Action sessions this spring to learn more about incarcerated survivors, ways you can help, and strategies on writing letters. Until then, visit our direct action campaign landing page and our highlighted cases page.
