End Abuse of People with Disabilities: Meeting the Needs of Immigrant Survivors with Disabilities

Survivors with disabilities who have immigrated to the United States face challenges in reporting victimization and receiving services. Language barriers, a lack of a support network in the United States, difficulties accessing services, and lack of knowledge of the criminal justice system or services available will pose barriers for immigrant survivors. When the survivor also has a disability, they face additional challenges to services and healing. In this webinar, Kimber Nicoletti, the Director of Multicultural Efforts to End Sexual Assault (MESA) at Purdue University, will review some best practices for service providers working with immigrant survivors with disabilities.
