ASERT has compiled resources for those with autism and those who care for people with autism relating to the current COVID-19 outbreak.
FISA Foundation and Southwest PA Says No More are partnering with The Vera Institute of Justice’s End Abuse of People with Disabilities initiative on a three-session interactive webinar series to bring together experts at the intersections of disability, domestic and sexual violence, campus violence, human trafficking, and racial justice.
Session 1 – Meeting the Needs of Human Trafficking Victims with Disabilities
People with disabilities (including autism and intellectual disabilities) are at high risk for both sex and labor trafficking, with many cases including an element that is unique to people with disabilities: traffickers stealing their government benefits, such as Supplemental Security Income or Social Security Disability Insurance. This session will explore the issues facing victims of trafficking who have disabilities, including the unique ways they are trafficked and implications for service providers.
