In January 2013, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released a new report, The National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey: 2010 Findings on Victimization by Sexual Orientation, that shows that lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) people experience sexual violence and intimate partner violence at the same or higher rates as heterosexual people. In the web conference, CDC’s Mikel Walters will describe the findings of the report.  We will then explore the implications for policy with state, territorial, tribal and national organizations..
