The month of October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. In 2017, NACDD and ITACC compiled a report on the work that many of our Councils are doing on Domestic Violence and Sexual Abuse in people with Developmental Disabilities.
This week, ACL Administrator and Assistant Secretary for Aging, Lance Robertson, posted about “Recognizing Survivors of All Ages & Abilities This Domestic Violence Awareness Month.”
Big shoutout to all of the State and Territory DD Councils for the amazing work that they continue to do.
