Empowered Voices: Supporting Survivors with Disabilities
August 6, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
About this event
Research tells us individuals with disabilities experience domestic and intimate partner at nearly two times the rate of non-disabled people. As a community, (either as fellow disabled people or loved ones), we can serve a crucial role in uplifting, advocating for, and empowering survivors with disabilities. In this presentation, we will: define domestic and intimate partner abuse, learn potential barriers for people with disabilities to report abuse, recognize warning signs of abuse, understand aspects of abuse unique to individuals with disabilities, and develop a plan for responding to a dating abuse situation, and learn about local resources.
