2021 VOCA Training: The Protection from Abuse Act and Firearms

2021 PLAN VOCA Grantee Training

June 8, 2021 - 1.5 Hours

This training session reviews the basics of the Protection from Abuse Act and the recent amendments made under Act 79. After this session participants will be able to understand the updated firearms relinquishment provisions in the PFAA. The session will also review the updates to the PFAA process and procedure and to the Firearms Act due to Act 79, and what these amendments mean for survivors of domestic violence both under state and federal law.

The webinar is presented through a survivor-centered and trauma-informed lawyering lens, so participants can think about devising creative solutions under the new PFAA language to assist the survivors they work with.
