Jan 09 Trauma Informed Victim Advocacy
Built upon fourteen years of experience working with survivors of domestic abuse and sexual assault, Disability Rights Wisconsin launched a Victim Advocacy Program in 2016 to ensure people with disabilities have equal access to victim response and support programs as well as the civil and criminal justice systems.
This week National Public Radio is featuring a series on the prevalence of sexual assault against people with disabilities. This series emphasizes the serious and pervasive nature of this heinous abuse of people with disabilities. We encourage you to listen to this report.
If you are a person with a disability who has been a victim of a crime, including sexual assault, or know of a person with a disability who is a victim, please contact DRW’s victim advocacy team for free, confidential, and trauma-informed advocacy to support you to obtain justice and recover from trauma you have experienced.
