This book equips readers with knowledge, motivation, and strategies to rally against violence and abuse of people with disabilities.This book tackles the issue of violence and abuse of people with disabilities with a blend of boldness and sensitivity. A comprehensive volume, it presents an exploration of the problem and its causes, explores the internal and external barriers that hinder people with disabilities from taking action, describes the system of laws and agencies that work to protect and support victims and promote social justice, and offers strategies to empower individuals and help people organize to prevent and combat violence and abuse. All people with disabilities experience higher rates of violence and abuse than people without disabilities. This book addresses the problem head-on, with a focus on educating and empowering people with and without disabilities to work together to raise awareness of the problem, break down barriers, change ineffective policies, and make systems responsive to the needs of people with disabilities.
