The Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) was passed unanimously by both parties in Congress in 2003. The purpose of the act is to “provide for the analysis of the incidence and effects of prison rape in federal, state, and local institutions and to provide information, resources, recommendations and funding to protect individuals from prison rape.” (Prison Rape Elimination Act, 2003.)

We at Partners Against Violence work with prisons, jails, detention centers, and even federal bureaus. We have established a different form of partnership with each one. Some more than others depending on what exactly you would like to feature. We are supported by VALOR, which also provides many resources for organizations looking to develop a PREA Response team institutionalizing services for incarcerated Survivors.
