Crowdfunding—raising money to support a business or cause by reaching out to large numbers of people as donors or investors—has become popular for both non-profit causes and for-profit businesses. While many are familiar with donation—based crowdfunding through platforms such as Kickstarter or Indiegogo, recent changes in state and federal securities law have made investment crowdfunding a more realistic option for business and nonprofits. The crowdfunding market is rapidly growing, including web platforms that offer crowdfunding opportunities. All in all, an array of legal and ethical issues can trip up any individual or organization looking at this financing approach.

With experts on crowdfunding from both the for-profit and non-profit realms, this program will educate attorneys whose clients want to offer either a business or project up for crowdfunding, or are thinking of getting into the funding portal business. The topics to be covered include basic legal requirements, liability issues, and some practical tips and best practices.

Baton Rouge Human Trafficking Summit

The Governor’s Office of Programs and Planning in collaboration with key stakeholders such as DCFS, the Louisiana Alliance of Children’s Advocacy Centers (LACAC), Louisiana State Police (LSP), HP Serve, and the Governor’s Office Human Trafficking Prevention Commission will host a series of Regional trafficking summits to gather pertinent information from key stakeholders regarding the existing services, protocols, and community response to trafficking victims. Information gained from these summits will provide a statewide assessment of the strengths, resources, and gaps in services and protocols related to trafficking victims. It is our hope that information gained from the comprehensive needs assessment will be further utilized by stakeholders to strengthen existing services, develop new policies and programs to fill in the gaps, and to create a statewide network and collaborative response to human trafficking.
 
The summits will be held from November 2017-March 2018. Each summit will consist of a full-day of discussion facilitated by national experts with an expected group of between 50-100 key stakeholders per region. The planning team will strategically seek to engage as many cross-sector partners as possible to have representative groups from each discipline. Topic areas for the facilitated discussions for each summit will include, but are not limited to: Current community response, identification and recovery response, and follow up victim services response. The summits will be inclusive of the region’s anti-trafficking taskforces, coalitions and key agencies. These summits are made possible through funding from AMBER Alert, a program of the National Criminal Justice Training Center (NCJTC) at Fox Valley Technical College (FVTC).
 
Below is the schedule for the upcoming summits:
 
November 28, 2017---Baton Rouge
November 30, 2017---Alexandria
December 13, 2017---Shreveport
December 14, 2017---Monroe

Contemporary Issues in Risk Assessment

Contemporary Issues in Risk Assessment

Risk assessment within criminal justice settings has recently been a topic of intense interest and scrutiny. Sensational headlines and in-depth investigations have highlighted concerns with the methods and outcomes associated with risk assessment, addressing issues such as the ubiquitous nature of Big Data to the potential impact of risk assessments on racial disparities and mass incarceration. This webinar will provide a comprehensive review of risk assessment in criminal justice settings. We will discuss the purposes and settings of risk assessment, how risk assessments are developed, the types of factors typically included, issues related to accuracy, and the different approaches to risk assessment. We will also spend time discussing how to communicate the results of risk assessments, including a recent proposal to standardize how we do so. We'll also focus on a number of recent controversies in this area, touching on issues of fairness, constitutionality, and bias. Finally, we'll provide a number of recommendations for the responsible development and use of risk assessments in criminal justice settings.
