In January of 2018, NPR released an investigative series called “Abuse and Betrayed”. It was reported that people with intellectual disabilities are s*xually assaulted at seven times the rate of people without disabilities. It's a crime that often goes unrecognized and unpunished.

C.W.: s*xual assault and abuse.

Listen to the series here: https://www.npr.org/series/575502633/abused-and-betrayed

[Image Description: Black and white image with text that states: "49% of people with intellectual disabilities will experience 10 or more s*xual assaults over their lifetime. Stop the "Hidden Epidemic" of s*xual violence against people with cognitive disabilities. There is help." End I.D.]

If you or someone you know has experienced abuse and has a disability, there is HELP.

Wisconsin Life | Who are the Hmong? Virtual Tour | Season 1 | Episode 7

We celebrate Hmong History, this week, in honor of Asian Heritage Month. Hmong survivors deserve allies that understand their history and culture.

The earliest written accounts show that the Hmong people, who is a sub-group of the Miao Chinese ethnic group, lived in the mountain regions of China dating back to 2700 B.C. They moved south into Vietnam, Laos and Thailand because of political unrest during the Han Dynasty Empire. It’s been about 45 years since the Hmong people have immigrated to the U.S. after what is later known as the Secret War, parallel to what Americans know as the Vietnam War. In the late 70’s, the Hmong people fled the Laos government for cooperating or perceived cooperation with the United States’ Central Intelligence Agency in northern Laos during the Vietnam War. Many Hmong families settled all over the United States. There are currently 309,564 Hmong people living in the United States from 260,073, which was gathered data back in 2010. About 2,800 people identify as being Hmong living in Green Bay today.

Take a virtual tour of Who are the Hmong, an exhibit at the Nevell Public Museum.

Remember to wear your denim today!
Denim Day started in 1992 in Italy when a girl was s*xually assaulted by her driving instructor. She reported the r**e and he was convicted. Years later he appealed to the court and he was released. The court's reasoning was since she was wearing tight skinny jeans she consented.
Powerful Parliament women protested the verdict by wearing jeans outside of the Supreme Court. This spread all over the world and now annually on April 28th we all celebrate Denim Day to combat the myth of women's clothes as consent.

History of Sexual Assault Awareness Month

"Wide social activism around the issue of s*xual assault continued into the 1970s, bringing with it support for survivors and heightened awareness. The first r**e crisis center was founded in San Francisco in 1971, the same city where the first U.S. Take Back the Night event was held seven years later. "

The Sexual Assault Epidemic No One Talks About

People with intellectual disabilities are s*xually assaulted at a rate seven times higher than those without disabilities. It's one of the highest rates of s*xual assault of any group in America, and it's hardly talked about at all.

People with intellectual disabilities are the victims of s*xual assault at a rate seven times higher than those without disabilities. But this epidemic receives little attention.

The digital exhibition features images of outfits based on student-survivor descriptions of the clothes they were wearing during their s*xual assault, along with sound files containing the stories of each survivor. This may be triggering to some people, but does negate the misconception that the outfit you're wearing contributes to s*xual violence.

(Please share) UNDERSTANDING S*X TRAFFICKING: Due to the high response to my public-service educational lecture, I am giving it again, since to fight this scourge of our society we must first understand its components and dynamics. Please join me for 45 minute on Wednesday, October 14, at 8 PM ET One-third of humans trafficked for s*x in the USA arrive across borders, while an estimated two-thirds are recruited in our neighborhoods. Learn about the role of airlines, schools, businesses, hotels, sports arenas, prisons and banks in abetting or fighting it—and the initiatives taken by those wishing to abolish it vs. those who want to fixate slavery in the law. In this comprehensive speech, I will explain the mechanics of supply and demand and will present a new paradigm of thinking for the audience to help battle—and defeat—the misery of s*xual slavery in our own backyard.
