Join us for Incorporating the “Philadelphia Model Into your Sexual Assault Investigations – What Boards Should Know” with Sunny Marriner on June 27 at 12:00 pm EST.
SUNNY MARRINER is an active, dynamic, woman leader, advocate and change agent dedicated to advancing equality for women experiencing violence. Sunny has the distinction of being an award-winning and recognized community, provincial, and national leader with a strong reputation as a violence against women expert across sectors in Ontario and Canada.
As the leader of the federally-funded “Improving Institutional Accountability” project, Sunny led Canada in the introduction of what’s known as “The Philadelphia Model” of sexual assault investigation case review. Over eight years (2011 – present) Sunny has led pan-Canadian teams of sexual violence expert advocates in developing a uniquely Canadian iteration of this model, VAW Advocate Case Review (VACR). Her work became most widely known through its inclusion in the noted Globe and Mail “Unfounded” series (2017) and today she works with all levels of policing in Canada to implement evidence-based, methodologically sound oversight practices, and best practices in sexual assault investigations.
Sunny is currently leading pilot VACR teams in municipal police services in eight Ontario communities, with new pilot sites continuing to join the project on an on-going basis. She has further assembled, trained, coached, and reviewed cases with teams in fourteen Ontario communities, including providing the basic framework for the newly-launched Ontario Provincial Police review model. As project leader, today Sunny’s work is building uniformity across Ontario policing in case review, while expanding the VACR model into central Canada with the first pilot site in Calgary, AB and additional central Canadian and Yukon pilots poised to join in 2019.
Sunny is currently acting as a consultant with Ontario police services and the Ontario Information and Privacy Commission on the development of a Sexual Assault Investigations best practices framework due for release in 2019. She is further consulting with the RCMP Sexual Assault Review Team on a national case review roll-out across RCMP divisions, and is a serving member of the Canadian Forces National Investigation Service Sexual Assault Review Program; a national six-member team reviewing sexual assault reports in Canada’s military.
Sunny’s experience working as an advocate, activist, trainer, frontline support worker, researcher, consultant, and community leader on issues relating to Violence Against Women in Canada for over twenty years has been crucial to the growing success of VAW Advocate Case Reviews across Ontario and Canada. As the founder of Ontario’s first support and outreach program for young marginalized and criminalized survivors of sexual violence, Sunny brings a deep analysis of how systemic and institutional failures both interact with, and impact, the most marginalized populations of VAW survivors; a critical lens required in improving police investigations of sexual assault. In particular, this lens serves to contribute to improved police investigations in violence against Indigenous women.
Sunny’s years employment in frontline community organizations combating violence against women, including as Executive Director of the Ottawa Rape Crisis Centre (2013-2019), the Sexual Assault Support Centre of Ottawa (1997-2012), and the Ottawa Coalition to End Violence Against Women (2017 to present), blend with her background and participation in large-scale VAW/legal knowledge mobilization and implementation projects to bridge the gap between advocates and law enforcement agencies. As an Executive member and past Vice- President of the Ontario Coalition of Rape Crisis Centres Sunny has led Ministry of the Attorney General-funded independent sexual assault centres across the province in education, law reform, policy analysis and advocacy for gender-equality and survivors of sexual violence. In her role as Eastern Regional representative to the Ministry of the Attorney General Sexual Assault Centre Provincial Advisory Committee (SACPAC; 2015 – 2019) Sunny worked to inform the provincial government, revitalize provincial statistics-gathering, advance Ontario’s understanding of services to survivors of violence, and to bring together diverse groups of people with different mandates and organizational missions to establish and accomplish mutual goals in VAW work. Her national affiliation with the Canadian Association of Sexual Assault Centres dates back over twenty years, and has connected her to sexual assault centre advocates from coast to coast to coast.
Sunny’s extensive participation in local, regional, provincial and national advisory and steering committees, along with her networks and profile, have made her an authoritative and respected voice on the national level across diverse groups of gender-equality-seeking advocates with specializations in a wide range of disciplines. She is currently one of 150 women leaders in Canada working to advance gender equality through the Gender Equality Network, a project slated to continue until 2020. In 2018 she was awarded an Attorney General’s Victim Services Award of Distinction for her long-standing work on systemic change for survivors of sexual violence across Ontario and, in particular, her advancement of case review models in sexual assault investigations.
Sunny’s focus for over 20 years has been law reform in criminal justice treatment of sexual assault. Today she is the recognized Canadian expert in implementation of the Philadelphia Model of VAW Advocate Case Review to ensure thorough police investigations and accountability in reported Violence Against Women cases.
