Host: National Center on Protection Orders and Full Faith & Credit

Presenter:

Sandra Harrell, Director, Accessing Safety Initiative Center on Victimization and Safety, Vera Institute of Justice

This webinar will review unique dynamics of abuse for people with disabilities, the barriers those survivors face when seeking help and offer strategies for increasing capacity.

Audience:

Attorneys, Advocates, Law Enforcement and Court Personnel
