Justice for victims of gender-based crimes requires a coordinated response across the spectrum of allied professionals and direct services. To achieve the best outcomes, we work with not only prosecutors, but equally with law enforcement, advocates, policy makers, and the media.
We unfortunately cannot work directly with victims or witnesses. AEquitas is primarily a technical assistance provider for prosecutors and allied justice system professionals. This means we can provide training and technical assistance to justice system professionals involved in the prosecution of gender-based violence cases, but we can't become directly involved with individual cases. We can, however, refer victims and services to other support services who can help directly. These organizations include:

Victim Connect
National Domestic Violence Hotline
Polaris Project

SAFETY ALERT: If you are in danger, please call 911 immediately.
AEquitas offers legal resources, case-specific strategy consultations, collaborative initiatives with partner organizations, and national training programs in our focus areas. For the full scope of our services see "What We Do" on the Home Page

AEquitas conducts both in-person and web-based trainings on a wide variety of topics related to the investigation and prosecution of gender-based violence. We'll work with you to determine the best training options available to meet the needs of your audience.
Web-based trainings are free. For in-person/on-site trainings, AEquitas does not charge for materials and staff instruction, but requires that travel-related expenses be covered.
AEquitas' staff of experienced prosecutors deliver the trainings. On occasion we may also partner with adjunct faculty facilitators, including but not limited to state and national experts representing law enforcement officers, judges, advocates, medical professionals, and mental health professionals.
