We all know about #MeToo. What we don’t talk about is the epidemic of sexual assault against people with disabilities. Rooted in Rights and the Disability Visibility Project collaborated to lift up the voices of disabled survivors so that their stories could be heard.
All survivors of sexual abuse deserve to access the resources they need to be healthy and successful. We’ve made a list of some of them for you.
