Webinar Recording – What You Should Know About Ending Violence in the Deaf Community

Recorded on April 29, 2021

Webinar hosted by David S. Prescott

Guest Speaker: Mary Pat Luetke-Stahlman

Deaf people are significantly more likely to experience abuse and violence than are people in the hearing community. This conversation will provide attendees with crucial information about the challenges that deaf people face. As just one example, in police investigations, if the individual who perpetrated violence is hearing, they are typically afforded quicker access to police officers than the deaf person who was victimized. This can result in less likelihood of accountability.

Knowledge of the challenges that deaf people face can help professionals who are seeking to end violence. This webinar conversation includes sign language interpretation and closed captions.
