Listening and Exchange Session on “Recognizing and Addressing Victim/Offender Overlap”

June 30, 2022
The Sentencing Project and national victim/survivor advocate Anne Seymour co-facilitated a listening and exchange session around recognizing and addressing victim-offender overlap in our efforts to create public safety, prevent violence and ensure humane justice systems.

The Sentencing Project works to promote effective and humane responses to crime that minimize imprisonment and criminalization by promoting racial/ethnic, economic and gender justice. Increasingly, crime survivors and those who assist them are critical partners in efforts to promote meaningful justice reforms, equitable access to services for survivors, crime prevention strategies including access to mental health care and community-based violence interruption initiatives, and restorative justice.
