Riverside International Film Festival partners with Women Wonder Writers on the film screening Q+A with Judge Claudette White, who is featured in TRIBAL JUSTICE.  The discussion will be facilitated by WWW Founding Executive Director Debra Mares. 

"The tribal courts both incorporate traditional values and hold up an example to the nation about the possibilities of alternative dispute resolution. [They] have much to offer to the tribal communities, and much to teach the other court systems operating in the United States."
          — The Honorable Sandra Day O’Connor, former Supreme Court Justice

Dear Friends & Supporters,

Thank you for your support at #Halt the Assault,™ a spoken word event, feat. Men at the Mic during Riverside Arts Walk on April 5, 2018

Accomplished spoken word artists performed their poetry addressing the #MeToo epidemic to empower our girls.  Congratulations to our Poetry Contest Winners Chantel Hung, Alondra Gonzalez, Marina Garcia and Madison Allred.

Please continue this important conversation.  Together we can make a difference and break the cycle of victimization and abuse for our girls.  We are all part of the solution.

Why do our girls matter in the #MeToo epidemic?

On average, there are 321,500 victims (age 12 or older) of rape and sexual assault each year in the U.S. Ages 12-34 are the highest risk years for rape and sexual assault.  Young women are especially at risk. 82% of all juvenile victims are female. Girls ages 16-19 are four times more likely than the general population to be the victims of rape, attempted rape or sexual assault. Young female adults ages 18-24 who are college students are three times more likely than women in general to experience sexual violence. 
 
Together we can recognize the high risk of sexual assault facing our girls and support them!

“The Write of Your L!fe motivated me to help others realize they can be anything they want as long as they try and continue growing as a person. It helped me find the reason why I should continue going to school and try my all to be the best me I can. It changed my way of thinking and being. It made me realize others are going through tough things too, not just me, and my group motivated me to continue in life and not go back to my old habits. I'm glad to say The Write of Your L!fe encouraged me to be the best me and help others find their best them. It was a real life-changing experience for me and I hope it helps change many more.”

Eddie was facing academic discipline and suspension for behavior issues. After going through a trial among his peers at the Jurupa Unified School District Student Court and working with WWW Case Manager Valeria Gironas for 12 weeks, his behavior improved, he began passing all classes, and he is now on track to graduate! Powerful transformations like Eddie's are possible because WWW is able to collaboratively work with youth during a tender time. Eddie's name is changed to protect confidentiality.
