Sexual Violence, Child Marriage, and Prosecutions

 

Tuesday, October 17, 7:00-9:00 pm

Mitchell Hamline School of Law, Kelley Board Room

875 Summit Avenue, St. Paul, MN 55105

 

Every two minutes someone is sexually assaulted in the United States, yet hundreds of thousands of rape kits collected from these assaults sit untested in storage facilities across the country, with close to 4,000 of them in Minnesota.

 

Nearly 250,000 underage U.S. girls were married between 2000 and 2010. Many child marriages occur to avoid statutory rape laws or to protect rapists.

 

Ellen Kennedy, Ph.D., Executive Director of World Without Genocide, and Caroline Palmer, J.D., Public and Legal Affairs Manager of the Minnesota Coalition Against Sexual Assault, will discuss rape kit reform, child marriage, and current legislative efforts to enhance prosecutions for sexual violence.

 

Open to the public; no reservations are necessary. $10 general public, $5 students and seniors, and free to Mitchell Hamline students. 2 ‘clock hours’ for educators and $25 for two standard CLE credits for lawyers.

 

Co-sponsored by Forward Global Women and the Minnesota Coalition Against Sexual Assault.
