This week, TRLA and LASSA advocates joined the Texas Association Against Sexual Assault (TAASA) for their annual conference. The theme of this year’s conference was Mind the Gap: Who’s Missing from the Movement. TAASA’s annual conference is a statewide opportunity for advocates and professionals to learn and share information around emerging issues in sexual assault prevention and assistance.
During the event, TRLA advocates shared their expertise on several topics related to sexual assault. Attorneys Kathryn Newell and Adriana Rodriguez spoke on empowering student survivors while attorney Maricarmen Garza focused on privacy issues and attorney Soraya Yanar Hanshew addressed sexual assault in the workplace. TRLA also hosted a table booth throughout the conference to educate attendees on our new Legal Aid for Survivors of Sexual Assault project.
