BWJP Military-Civilian Advocate Resource Network Goes Public and Launches Listserv‏

The Battered Women’s Justice Project (BWJP) Military-Civilian Advocate Resource Network is now open to the public and can be accessed at http://military-civilianadvocatenetwork.wikispaces.com/. This means that all of the extensive information about intimate partner violence (IPV) involving military service members and veterans and their families that was on the  private site is now available to the public.

It includes:

  • Information about the Department of Defense, Reserves, National Guard, and Department of Veterans Affairs systems and their response to IPV.
  • Pertinent articles and research on IPV and co-occurring conditions such as combat-related post-traumatic stress disorder.
  • Information on justice-involved veterans and veterans treatment courts.
  • Links to related websites and resources.

A listserv has been launched to replace the discussion component of the previous site.  This listserv will allow both military and civilian victim advocates to network and share information and to request consultation with subject matter experts with specialized expertise working with military members, veterans, and their families.   (Note: This listserv is separate from the BWJP Military-Related Legal Technical Assistance Project listserv for attorneys and legal advocates.)

Glenna Tinney, BWJP’s Military Advocacy Program Coordinator, is the moderator for the listserv and is available to provide technical assistance. She can be reached via email at gtinney@bwjp.org or by phone at 1-703-822-8118 (direct number) or 1-800-903-0111 x 1 then x 258 (voicemail).

JOIN THE LISTSERV NOW! To join the listserv, please sign up below. You will receive an email that confirms your subscription immediately (check your spam). You will need to reply to that email to initiate your membership to the listserv.

**Note: If you signed up for the Military-Civilian Advocate Resource Network previously, you should have received an email saying that you have automatically been signed up for the new listserv and giving you the choice to opt out.
