- « Nothing About Us Without Us: Centering the Movement Around Self-Advocates
- Forging Relationships Between Victim Service Providers and Academic Institutions »
Any effort to address domestic violence and sexual assault in the lives of people with disabilities should include those most affected. At the same time, to ensure their full and meaningful participation, you need to prepare self-advocates to be involved. This is accomplished by teaching them about the systems involved in interpersonal violence, as well as the history of the anti-violence movement and its philosophical underpinnings. This webinar will provide an overview of the importance of effective participation of self-advocates at the intersection of violence and disability as well as some of the benefits of ensuring that the movement is centered around their lived experiences. Hear directly from a panel of self-advocates as they share their experiences in anti-violence movement and what supports they want and need in their work.
