The National Center on Ending Abuse of People with Disabilities is hosting a webinar on Tuesday, February 23, from 2 pm to 3:30 pm EST, entitled “A Conversation on Serving Survivors with Disabilities.”
“Research has shown that people with disabilities experience increased risk of domestic and sexual violence compared to people without disabilities. They also experience unique challenges in receiving healing and support, everything from receiving outreach for services through participating in programming. This conversation will help you begin to understand the unique dynamics of sexual and domestic violence in the lives of people with disabilities and the barriers they face when seeking services. You will also receive practical guidance for making your services safer and more accessible for all! This session features advocate Renee Lopez from ADAPT of Texas and Advisory Board Member for SAFE Disability Services, and Sandra Harrell, Associate Director at the Center on Victimization and Safety, Vera Institute of Justice.” Register here!
