IT’S HAPPENING…..AND YOU CAN HELP STOP IT

November 27 @ 12:00 am

There is a statewide initiative taking place to promote awareness of the abuse and exploitation of individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities (I/DD). Most people in our society refuse to believe that anyone would even consider abusing, neglecting or exploiting a person with an intellectual or developmental disability (I/DD). But it’s happening every day. It takes a community to end this tragedy. Whether you are a professional, family member, self-advocate, or work in law enforcement please join us ON November 27 for one of these presentations (3:00 OR 5:30 pm) to learn how you can help. WARNING: Due to the graphic nature of some of the stories and video presented, this can be upsetting to some people and provoke strong emotions and instigate reactions for those with sensitivities. Some of the special effects in the video could trigger reactions from individuals with sensitivity to visual and light contrast changes. We advise anyone with these sensitivities to leave the room. We understand these conversations are hard, but we hope you will leave this event with the motivation to do something about it. Reserve your seat at:https://pcs-its-happening.eventbrite.com
