Thank You For Mobilizing Support for People with Disabilities Who Experience Sexual Violence!

During November – December 2020, The Illinois Self Advocacy Alliance collaborated on the AAPD (American Association of People with Disabilities) 2020 Paul G Hearne Leadership Award to engage survivors with disabilities, rape crisis centers, service providers, professionals and advocates in doing collaborative regional and statewide work aimed at improving services, policies and opportunities for people with disabilities who have experienced sexual violence. 

More than 350 participants started the journey of mobilizing support by attending the presentations.  All presentations were recorded and the recordings, along with presentation slides, can be found below.
