This video is part of a series documenting the positive impact of the PREA Standards. Produced by the PRC in partnership with Just Detention International, the PREA and Culture Change series features currently and formerly incarcerated people and corrections staff speaking about how PREA is changing the culture of corrections—and making facilities safer for everyone.
Rodney Roussell is a survivor of sexual abuse in confinement and is a member of JDI’s Survivor Council. In this video, Rodney shares his story and emphasizes that everyone should be safe from sexual abuse and harassment.
The videos are a very useful tool for staff trainings, and other PREA stakeholders—such as advocates, victim services providers, and health care professionals—can also draw on them for their work inside detention facilities.
Each video is also available in an accessible format including closed captions, interactive transcript, and audio descriptions.
