Organizers Forum: Sexual Assault, Disability, and #MeToo

  • Tuesday, February 20, 2018
  • 1:00-2:00 p.m. Eastern

In January, National Council on Disability released a report, “Not on the Radar: Sexual Assault of College Students with Disabilities,” which seeks to better understand how colleges respond to, prevent, and support survivors of sexual assault who have disabilities. Speakers will provide an overview of the report, the report recommendations, and discuss how it connects to the national #MeToo movement, and next steps.

Speakers:

  • Deb Cotter, National Council on Disability
  • Ana Torres-Davis, National Council on Disability
  • Wendy Harbour, Association on Higher Education and Disability

Mark your calendars! The Organizer’s Forum has a call on the 3rd Tuesday of each month, 1:00-2:00 p.m. Eastern.

Background:

The Organizing Workgroup of the National Disability Leadership Alliance hosts these calls the third Tuesday of every month as a resource for disability organizers, in an effort toward building the organizing capacity of the disability community across the country. They generally follow the format of a Welcome followed by 2-3 experts in a given area speaking for a few minutes on their experiences, advice and challenges. The calls include a 20-30 minute question and answer period.
