According to an article by Vera Institute and Esperanza United, 31.6% of females with disabilities compared to 18.4% of females without disabilities report experiencing sexual victimization on campus.
If you are a person with a disability and have been a victim of sexual assault, dating/domestic violence, and/or stalking, you have choices. You are not to blame for the abuse or assault that you experienced. You did not deserve to be violated or abused. If you have experienced any form of violence or abuse, you are not alone. CSB and SJU and the surrounding community have resources that can help you through these difficult experiences. Knowledge and awareness about safety and healing can help. Reach out to resources for help with supportive measures, healing resources, and reporting options.
