Sexual health and healthy relationships for people with cognitive and developmental disabilities are critical to end sexual violence and achieve health equity.
Join this cross-sector stakeholder discussion to hear from researchers at the Center for Health Equity at Indiana Institute on Disability and Community, people with disabilities, disability justice advocates, a disability serving agency, care givers, and a sexual assault advocate who will discuss the current cultural moment and what it will take to advance sexual health equity for people with cognitive and developmental disabilities.
Panelists will present current research meant to advance sexual health education and sexual self-advocacy among people with cognitive and developmental disabilities in Indiana. The cross-sector panel will discuss the implications, identify resources, and make recommendations for change.
