Envision Illinois: Uniting Disability & Domestic Violence Services to Achieve Safety, Justice & Healing

July 9 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Domestic Violence takes place within relationships, yet it often goes unrecognized and hidden from view. Envision Illinois is a collaborative project that brings together self- advocates, domestic violence and disability organizations across Illinois to transform services for people with disabilities and Deaf people who have experienced domestic violence in ways that support safety, justice and healing. Participants will learn what domestic violence is; prevalence of domestic violence and people with disabilities; how to respond to a disclosure of domestic violence; why collaboration is key to supporting victims with disabilities; and the Envision Illinois Resource Corner. Learn how you can be part of the solution! THIS SESSION IS PART OF THE JULY 9th I/DD COMMITTEE MEETING

Presenter: Krescene Beck, Illinois Self-Advocacy Alliance
