Description of Sexual Assault Awareness: LGBTQ+
Instructor: Katy Nordoff
LGBTQ+ individuals experience up to 4x higher rates of sexual victimization, yet too often our conversations about sexual assault neglect their unique experiences. This presentation will focus on supporting LGBTQ+ survivors and preventing further sexual violence from occurring. We will identify the factors that put sexual and gender minorities at greater risk of harm, as well as strategies for supporting survivors and connecting them with services that can help. Ultimately, participants will walk away with new tools to intervene before violence occurs and promote a culture of safety and respect.
