4/20/21: Sexual Violence & People with Disabilities: What It Is & What We Can Do About It
Sexual violence is a violation of power, control, and autonomy, and disproportionately impacts People with Disabilities. While disability itself is a broad term, People with Disabilities are - on average - seven times more likely to experience sexual violence. We will examine how systems and isms put people at risk, and how we can shift that dynamic.
