​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’ 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.
