New Free Resource!
Welcome to a new free online resource, the Indiana Disability Justice & Violence Prevention HUB. This platform includes free content created for people with disabilities, service providers, caretakers, and anyone else who is interested in supporting people with disabilities. The HUB was created by a coalition of people with disabilities/self-advocates, representatives of sexual and domestic violence prevention and intervention programs, disability service providers, and caregivers.
The working group that created The Hub is called the Indiana Abuse Prevention Disability Task Force (APDTF). The mission of The Task Force is to increase holistic wellness of people with disabilities through education, advocacy, restorative and transformative accountability, policy change, research, and action. The Task Force created this space to ensure that violence prevention and disability justice materials created by survivors and people with disabilities who lead the movement to end violence are uplifted and accessible to anyone. Publications on the Task Force hub include: best practices, research, data and education posts, book reviews, media reviews (movies, tv, hashtags, etc), event reviews, and personal stories on disability, survivorship, and/or prevention.
