Scott Berkowitz, President, RAINN
Jennifer Marsh, Vice President of Special Projects, RAINN
RAINN is the nation’s largest anti-sexual violence organization. We will discuss the sexual violence experienced by too many people with disabilities. Data from the National Crime Victimization Survey shows that an average of 59,000 adults with disabilities are raped or sexually assaulted each year. Approximately half of all adults with cognitive disabilities will experience 10 or more sexually abusive incidents in their lifetime. Join us for this vital conversation, where RAINN’s leaders will share with us their lessons on prevention and protection.
RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network) is the nation’s largest anti-sexual violence organization. RAINN created and operates the National Sexual Assault Hotline (800.656.HOPE, online.rainn.org and rainn.org/es) in partnership with more than 1,000 local sexual assault service providers across the country and operates the DoD Safe Helpline for the Department of Defense. RAINN also carries out programs to prevent sexual violence, help victims and ensure that perpetrators are brought to justice.
