Disability Justice Highlight Reel Part 1: Ableism and Systems of Harm

This Podcast episode is the first in a two-part series, exploring Disability Justice as a fundamental value in the anti-sexual and intimate partner violence movement, in honor of National Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month. 

People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities experience sexual and domestic violence at drastically higher rates but have historically not been included in shaping solutions. 

Despite immense barriers, self-advocates in the disability community are making huge steps to advocate for disability justice in prevention and advocacy spaces. 

For this special 2-part episode of PreventConnect, we pulled together some of the most impactful keynotes and interviews to come out of PreventConnect and VALOR around disability justice and inclusion, along with some new interviews about how staff are putting what we’ve learned into practice.
