People with intellectual and developmental disabilities are 7 times more likely to experience sexual assault than people without disabilities. They are also more likely to experience domestic violence. That is why Arc chapters and partner organizations around the nation have been working together to end this violence and empower victims to get the resources they need to heal.
On Tuesday, September 17, join us for the webinar, “Strategies and Tools for Serving Survivors with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities.” The Arc Minnesota will present about our partnerships with community advocacy services to address the needs of adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities who have been victims of sexual or domestic violence. Leigh Ann Davis with the Arc of the United States will share statistics and trends about the victimization of persons with disabilities. This webinar is geared towards service providers, but caregivers, allies, and people with disabilities are invited to learn how we can work together to create change.
