NCEDSV leading prevention campaign
NCEDSV continues to bring people together to bring awareness to and discuss strategies to prevent sexual assault of people with developmental disabilities. We are hosting statewide virtual meetings to discuss the issues facing people with developmental disabilities who may be struggling in unhealthy relationships and are vulnerable to sexual assault.
Our goal is to engage members of an advisory committee who can share their expertise focusing on prevention, supporting survivors, improving access to services, and identifying and enhancing available resources.

WHEN: January 2020 Date TBD
- Parents of Young People (ages 12-24) with Developmental Disabilities;
- Self-and Peer-advocates; and
