The Project on Addressing Prison Rape (the Project) is committed to eliminating sexual abuse for individuals in custodial settings. The Project is a leader in addressing the implications and implementation of the Prison Rape Elimination Act of 2003 (PREA) and its national standards. Since 2000, the Project has provided training, technical assistance and legal guidance for correctional agencies, advocates and survivors who want to effectively prevent, respond and eliminate sexual abuse in custodial settings.
Overall, the Project has four goals: (1) training; (2) technical assistance; (3) legal expertise regarding sexual abuse in custodial settings; and (4) providing guidance on issues correctional agencies and advocates face in addressing PREA and responing to sexual abuse in custodial settings.
