Her research concerns the connection between economic vulnerability and IPV; restorative justice responses to IPV and sexual harm; and the intersections of gender and race subordination in criminal law doctrine, policy, and application. Her research is interdisciplinary and influenced by scholarship in critical race feminism, restorative justice, public health, and criminology.
Raymond (Ray) Douglas, PhD, is Russell Colgate Distinguished University Professor of History at Colgate University. His most recent work of history, Orderly and Humane: The Expulsion of the Germans after the Second World War (2012), received the 2013 George Louis Beer Prize from the American Historical Association.

Crystal Feimster, PhD, is a tenured Associate Professor of African American Studies, History and American Studies at Yale University. Feimster’s academic focus is racial and sexual violence; currently, she is completing a project on rape during the American Civil War. Her book, Southern Horrors: Women and the Politics of Rape and Lynching, focuses on two women journalists, Ida B. Wells, who campaigned against lynching, and Rebecca Latimer Felton, who urged white men to prove their manhood by lynching black men accused of raping white women.
Donna Freitas, PhD, is the author of both fiction and nonfiction, and she lectures at universities across the US on her work about college students. She is a non-resident research associate at the Center for Religion and Society at Notre Dame.

Jennifer Freyd, PhD, is Professor of Psychology at the University of Oregon. She and her students investigate the causes and impacts of interpersonal violence and institutional betrayal on mental and physical health, behavior, and society. Freyd’s research with adult and child participants investigates predictions made by betrayal trauma theory. In recent years, Freyd has focused especially on betrayal and its antidote at the institutional level: institutional betrayal and institutional courage. Current projects include studies of campus and workplace sexual assault and harassment, minority discrimination, gender and sexual orientation, disclosures of abuse, physical and mental health distress, and institutional betrayal and institutional courage. 
Catherine Jacquet, PhD, is Assistant Professor of History and Women’s and Gender Studies at LSU. She is the author of The Injustices of Rape: How Activists Responded to Sexual Violence, 1950-1980 (UNC Press, 2019) and Guest Curator, “Confronting Violence, Improving Women’s Lives” Exhibition with the National Library of Medicine, Bethesda, MD.

Mary Koss, PhD, is a Regents’ Professor in the Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health at the University of Arizona. She published the first national study sexual assault among college students in 1987. She was the principal investigator of the RESTORE Program; the first restorative justice program for sex crimes among adults that was quantitatively evaluated.  She also directed Safety Connections, a restorative justice-based family strengthening program for children under 5 exposed to violence.  She has developed resources for campus use including ARC3 Campus Climate Survey and the STARRSA model for rehabilitation of those responsible for sexual misconduct.  Her ongoing work evaluates a sexual assault primary prevention program focusing on staff of alcohol serving establishments. She was the 8th recipient of the Visionary Award from End Violence Against Women International. She has received awards from the American Psychological Association:  the Award for Distinguished Contributions to Research in Public Policy (2000) and the Award for Distinguished Contributions to the International Advancement of Psychology (2017).
