Sexualized Violence and Disability: Tuesday, March 12th @ 12 noon – 1pm

People living with disabilities, both mental and physical, self-report having experienced sexualized violence of some kind (assault, abuse, and/or harassment) at alarming rates, the exact numbers of which are difficult to determine, as this intersection is often not studied or researched. Educating people living with disabilities about consent and violence is equally (if not more?) important to include throughout their lives, and the folks that support them are responsible for sharing these messages. Learn more about this particular intersection, including the statistics we are aware of and strategies for educating youth and young adults about consent and violence, in this lunch-n-learn webinar.
