October is Domestic Violence Awareness and Prevention Month and in support of survivors everywhere, End Abuse of People with Disabilities is dedicating this month’s webinar to lifting up promising practices for serving domestic violence survivors with disabilities.

Featuring a panel comprised of service providers addressing gaps in their own organizations, this webinar will explore the unique barriers that people with disabilities have to navigate when seeking healing and the strategies that advocates can employ to proactively remove those barriers. Specifically, the panelists will explore the civil-legal needs of survivors with disabilities, the needs of survivors who acquire a disability through domestic violence, and the unique needs of Deaf survivors.

The panelists will provide practical guidance from their own experience that will help you ensure that survivors with disabilities feel respected and supported within your programs.
