For Sexual Abuse and Sexual Violence Awareness Week we ran a campaign to amplify the voices of disabled survivors.
I’d like to thank everyone who participated and supported our campaign. Thank you for helping to raise awareness of disabled people’s experiences.
At its heart, Disabled Survivors Unite is an activist organisation, and we will continue to campaign for change.
Why not catch up on the blogs we’ve posted this week?
On Monday, a disabled survivor shared their story which helped us to better understand the relationship between disability and rape.
On Wednesday, a disabled survivor wrote a letter of support to other disabled survivors.
On Thursday, we published a piece of writing by a disabled survivor who spoke about healing after sexual violence.
On Friday, I wrote a piece on the importance of accessible support after abuse and sexual violence. We also hosted the Twitter Q&A and we are delighted with how many people participated. You can view the Storify of the Twitter Q&A by clicking here.
On Saturday, we asked our Twitter followers to write messages to disabled survivors and published these.
On Sunday, our co-founder Ashley wrote an honest account of life after sexual violence.
