The Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) and other international laws provide an international framework for serving survivors with disabilities safely and accessibly.  Anastasia Holoboff and her team studied the practices of programs around the world, including the United States, spoke to global experts at the intersection of violence and disability, and documented their findings in a groundbreaking report, Guidelines for Providing Rights-Based and Gender-Responsive Services to Address Gender-Based Violence and Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights. In this webinar, Ms. Holoboff will review the guidelines the team developed and highlight the lessons that agencies in the United States can learn from agencies around the world.
