New video: Abuse of people with disabilities

Posted | 0 Comments | Categories: FISA News

People with disabilities are abused at least three times more often than people without disabilities.  This includes a broad range of physical, sexual, verbal, emotional, and financial exploitation.  But rarely do people with disabilities get the education they need to recognize abuse or know what to do.

We’re excited to share a few behind-the-scenes photos from the production of  Abuse: There is Support. Each image shows actors, camera and sound operators, lighting, director and crew and many of them are autistic or have other disabilities.
