Tuesday, March 5, 2013

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.  With the Northwest Network of Bisexual, Trans, Lesbian and Gay Survivors of Abuse‘s Kristin Tucker, we will then explore the implications for developing, implementation and evaluating sexual violence and intimate partner violence prevention efforts in  LGBT communities.

  1. I listened to this webinar, it was very informative, plus we had a whole bunch of questions, more than the time aloud. Would love to be a part of a longer webinar on this topic
