This story reports on a new, first-of-its-kind website from Vera's Center on Victimization and Safety (CVS) that is the exclusively dedicated to ending abuse of people with disabilities. The site serves as a resource for victim and disability service providers, self-advocates, and policymakers. It offers guidance and resources aimed at raising awareness of these often invisible victims, enhancing services for people with disabilities who have been victimized, fostering accountability for those responsible for these crimes, strengthening prevention efforts, and increasing research on the issue and evaluation of potential solutions.
