Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

By Michele Cunningham and Michelle Mendiola-Mckinnie in affiliation with Chicago Hearing Society.

Did you know that Deaf individuals are 1.5x more likely to be victims of relationship violence—including sexual harassment, sexual assault, psychological abuse, and physical abuse—than the general population? Come see a powerful presentation about how domestic violence and sexual assault affect the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community, as well as the resources and challenges survivors face.

Participants will have the opportunity to explore how contexts
involving domestic/sexual violence impacts language decisions, to define ethical decision-making in contexts involving domestic or sexual violence, and to learn tips for keeping safe in these contexts.
