        The Conference on Crimes Against Women is THE national clearinghouse of best practices for law enforcement, prosecuting attorneys, advocates, medical professionals and others who work in the area of crimes against women.

        Dancing the Carceral Creep: The Feminist Anti-Violence Movement and the Pursuit of Criminalization, 1973-1986

        Time: 3:00 pm EST | 2:00 pm CST | 12:00 pm PST 

        Webinar by the National Clearinghouse for the Defense of Battered Women

        Long-time activist and scholar Mimi Kim will provide a historical examination of the anti-domestic violence movement and its eventual reliance on carceral or pro-criminalization practices and policies. She will explore the development of the victim witness programs and the Community Coordinated Response. By focusing on this historical tale, Mimi will discuss how actions that can seem strategic and even radical can turn into something quite different than originally envisioned. Mimi will also talk about how the lessons of history can also give us guidance as to how we can move forward in our work to end violence.
