Promoting Accessibility and Accountability: Law Enforcement and Survivors with Disabilities and Deaf Survivors
Date: May 9, 2017
About this Webinar                                                     Time: 2:00-3:30 pm EST
People with disabilities and Deaf people are more likely to be victims of domestic violence and sexual assault than people without disabilities. For example, Deaf women are 3.66 times more likely than hearing women to report experiences of unwanted sex by an intimate partner and 49% of people with intellectual disability will experience 10 or more sexually abusive incidents in their lifetimes. It is important that law enforcement officers are aware of best practices when serving survivors with disabilities and Deaf survivors to ensure that their response to these survivors is effective and appropriate. During this webinar two innovative programs will share their experiences related to working with law enforcement. They will provide an overview of the common barriers that survivors with disabilities, and specifically those with intellectual and developmental disabilities and those who are Deaf, face when interacting with law enforcement. Additionally, they will provide strategies for how law enforcement can build safe and effective relationships with these communities.
