Kankakee, IL – Kankakee Community College (KCC) is set to host a significant presentation on Friday, April 19th, from 8 AM to 3:30 PM, focusing on “Communication and Collaboration: Supporting Survivors with Disabilities.” This event is a key part of the Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) calendar, organized by the Clove Alliance to shed light on the critical intersection of disability and sexual violence.

According to the Clove Alliance, the interactive presentation will delve into best practices for supporting individuals with disabilities who are survivors of sexual assault. The event aims to equip attendees with the knowledge and skills necessary to provide sensitive and effective support to this vulnerable group. Continuing Education Units (CEUs) and QIDP CEUs will be available for professionals seeking to enhance their competency in this area.

The session underscores the importance of inclusivity and specialized support for survivors with disabilities, a group that faces unique challenges in the aftermath of sexual violence. The Clove Alliance’s initiative to bring this conversation to the forefront during SAAM is a testament to their comprehensive approach to advocacy, support, and education on issues of sexual violence.

Community members, professionals, and anyone interested in improving their understanding and support for survivors with disabilities are encouraged to attend. This event is a step toward creating a more informed and inclusive community, ready to support all survivors of sexual violence.
