Meeting the Needs of American Indian and Alaska Native Survivors with Disabilities (Webinar)
August 25, 2020
Vera Institute of Justice
End Abuse of People with Disabilities
2:00-3:00 p.m. ET
Over the last decade, great strides have been made to address violence against people with disabilities in communities across the country. However, many mainstream organizations may be less equipped to provide accessible, culturally responsive services to American Indian or Alaskan Native survivors with disabilities.
In the United States, 2.9 million people identify as "American Indian or Alaskan Native" (2010 U.S. Census). People in American Indian or Alaskan Native communities are more likely to experience domestic violence and sexual assault and have high rates of disability. Mainstream organizations need to know how to meet their unique needs in a culturally responsive way.
During this End Abuse of People with Disabilities webinar, Amanda Watson, Program Director at Praxis International, will explore ways in which programs can better understand the cultural implications of working with American Indian or Alaskan Native survivors with disabilities and provide guidance on strategies for best serving them.
