Sexual Assault and Survivors with Disabilities

Event Date
Monday, April 24, 2017, 11:30AM

People with disabilities experience sexual violence at rates more than three times higher than people without disabilities (BJS, 2016)[1], yet national conversations around sexual assault often fail to meaningfully include survivors with disabilities. In recognition of National Sexual Assault Awareness Month, the U.S. Department of Justice's Office on Violence Against Women (OVW), and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services's Administration for Community Living (ACL), are pleased to co-host a webinar for domestic and sexual violence service providers and community-based programs serving persons with disabilities, to: raise awareness of the prevalence of sexual violence among the populations we serve; highlight strong examples from the field; and share resources for further engagement and training to better support survivors with disabilities who have experienced sexual assault.
