Impact Justice is searching for the next Director of the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) Resource Center. The PREA Resource Center (PRC) is a project of Impact Justice, an organization which dares to dream of a humane and restorative approach to justice in the United States. Founded in 2015, Impact Justice is forging a new path to a justice system that is fair to all of us through its innovation, research, policy, and advocacy work. Overall, its work is rooted in reducing the number of people (adults and youth) in the criminal justice system, improving conditions and outcomes for those who are currently incarcerated, and providing opportunities to those who are rejoining communities.
The PRC was created in 2010 to lead nationwide efforts to eliminate all forms of sexual abuse and harassment in criminal- or juvenile-justice ordered confinement through implementation of the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) of 2003. Funded through a cooperative agreement between the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) and Impact Justice, PRC serves as an essential clearinghouse of information + training and technical assistance for the federal, state, local, and tribal corrections, juvenile justice, and law enforcement agencies that must comply with the PREA Standards. PRC also supports the DOJ PREA audit function and trains individuals who are certified by DOJ to conduct PREA audits.
The next Director of the PREA Resource Center will provide high level strategic leadership to a talented team of 35+ with diverse backgrounds in the fields of corrections, juvenile justice, sexual assault prevention, and public health. The ideal candidate will be a seasoned leader of programs and people, with deep experience managing multi-million-dollar budgets and an understanding of the compliance obligations inherent with the execution of a federal cooperative agreement. A background in the criminal legal system, sexual abuse prevention and response, or other aligned fields will be critical for the successful candidate to possess – specific knowledge of PREA, the Standards, and their implementation is desirable.
