What’s different? Examining unique experiences and barriers related to sexual assault and LGBTQ+ communities

This webinar is presented in partnership with Forge. Content will cover sexual assault prevalence rates and victimization statistics, common barriers to services, and specific LGBTQ-focused tactics that might be used in assaults. Concepts like social determinants of health, minority stress, adverse childhood experiences, and microaggressions will be discussed in easy-to-understand ways—linking how they are related to sexual assault within LGBTQ+ populations. Survivor quotes throughout will help frame issues and provide insights into solutions of common barriers.

Facilitator: Michael Munson, Executive Director of FORGE
