Jennifer Gentile Long is the Director of AEquitas: The Prosecutors’ Resource on Violence Against Women. As Director, she supervises, provides, and participates in training events, resource development, case consultation, and the delivery of technical assistance to civilian and military prosecutors and allied professionals. Before her appointment as Director of NCPVAW, she served as an Assistant District Attorney in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where she prosecuted cases involving domestic violence, sexual assault, and child physical and sexual abuse.
To learn more about Long’s work, read her piece through the American Prosecutors Research Institute, “Prosecuting Intimate Partner Sexual Assault”. She also speaks publicly about these issues to educate the public, and was interviewed on ESPN in a piece about SMU runner Monika Korra, a survivor of rape, and survivor’s breaking the silence.
We are honored to welcome her to the speaker roster at the speaker series, Trafficking in the United States. Her experience working with as a prosecutor, and training prosecutors and service providers across the country, including work on policy and systemic change, will provide a nuanced perspective about the various intersections of gender-based violence and why they all need to be approached with the same degree of sensitivity and impassioned advocacy.
