Get Involved

Many of the organizations in your community that serve people with disabilities and the organizations that address abuse are in need of volunteers and other supports. Volunteering your time at these organizations provides you an opportunity to raise their awareness about abuse of people with disabilities. The more you involve yourself in this issue, the more you will learn and be able to teach others. Consider:

  • Introducing the topic during staff meetings and discussions;
  • Circulating news stories and other events that highlight this issue; and
  • Inviting survivors with disabilities to speak at your events and organization.
