How are mass incarceration and sexual violence interconnected? What is our role as anti-sexual violence organizers, thinkers, and doers in justice movements? In this workshop, participants will explore three frameworks to understand how young people who survive sexual violence are criminalized for the ways they experience trauma and survival. This presentation will go over three frameworks: the trauma to prison pipeline, survived & punished, and the violence of/within carceral facilities. This presentation focuses on how young people, especially Black girls and trans, queer, and gender nonconforming youth, are particularly vulnerable to both sexual violence and subsequent criminalization.

This presentation will challenge our assumptions and expectations of the criminal legal system; help participants understand how the criminal legal system is often a source violence and instability instead of safety and healing; and offer potential next steps for anti-sexual violence agencies to work more closely with vulnerable and criminalized youth.
