Webinar Description:

Various risk factors put individuals with disabilities at risk of domestic violence, sexual violence, and all forms of human trafficking. This webinar will discuss these factors and also consider the intersection of the trafficking of persons with disabilities with domestic and sexual violence. The panelists explore how domestic violence and sexual assault agencies and human trafficking task forces can collaborate with disability rights organizations to address the unique needs of survivors of trafficking with disabilities.

Objectives:

As a result of this webinar, participants will be better able to:

  • Recognize the risk factors for individuals with disabilities to different forms of human trafficking.
  • Employ disability-related accommodations and techniques that may be required when working with survivors of human trafficking with disabilities.
  • Identify strategies for collaboration between and among domestic violence and sexual assault service providers, legal service providers, and disability rights organizations to support survivors of human trafficking with disabilities.
