Ohio Domestic Violence Network 

Please join us for this virtual, interactive training

Every survivor has the right to access domestic violence services that center their unique needs. Survivors with disabilities often experience significant and complex barriers to accessing and receiving support, and domestic violence programs and staff often struggle to meet accessibility needs. Service providers have a responsibility to reflect on our own policies and attitudes and address barriers to access. Join ODVN for an informational session on our responsibilities to adhere to the American Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements as domestic violence programs. This training will go beyond the discussion of compliance to explore the many ways advocates and program staff can work to improve program accessibility and meaningful access for survivors living with disabilities. This training will also include a panel discussion in the afternoon featuring the perspectives of people with professional and lived experience.
