Please join the Criminal Justice Society on Thursday, April 16, 2009, for an important discussion on teenage prostitution. Together we will question whether the prosecution method is truly the best method of dealing with prostituted youth, and we will look at ways in which legal professionals and community members can join forces to tackle this enormously pressing social issue. (Heavy appetizers, desserts, and non-alcoholic drinks provided.)
TIME: 6:00 p.m. (arrive 10-15 minutes for food)
PLACE: Room 329
DATE: April 16, 2009
SPEAKERS: Professor Raven Lidman (Youth Advocacy Clinic, Seattle University); Ms. Ye-Ting Woo (Assistant US Attorney, Western District of Washington); Dr. Debra Boyer, (Author of "Who Pays the Price? Assessment of Youth Involvement in Prostitution in Seattle"); and Ms. Terri Kimball (Director, Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Prevention, Seattle Human Services Department).
Special thanks to our club co-sponsors (Women's Law Caucus, American Civil Liberties Union, International Law Society, Street Law Youth Advocates, Law Students for Reproductive Justice) and to the Center for Professional Development, the Access to Justice Institute, Student Affairs, and the Student Bar Association.
