Sex, Love and Disability: Exploring Media Inclusivity and Coverage

Tuesday, November 13, 2018 - 6:30pm to 8:00pm

Research indicates that people with disabilities are approximately three times more likely to experience sexual assault, domestic violence and abuse. This is a sobering reality, one that is not often visible to a large segment of society.

The Committee for Campus Inclusion (Downtown Campus) and its partners have organized a two-part event series for fall and spring semesters, with the support of the Cronkite School and under the auspices of ASU’s CounterAct initiative to combat sexual violence and harassment and promote healthy relationships.

Join a discussion with moderator Vanessa Ruiz, professor of practice, and panelists:

  • Amit Algotar, M.D./Ph.D., Cancer Survivorship Clinic, The University of Arizona Cancer Center, Clinical Weight Loss Program, Banner University Medical Center-South Campus, College Athlete (tennis)
  • Ashley Bridwell, LMSW, brain tumor survivor, community advocate, Program Coordinator at Barrow Concussion and Brain Injury Center
  • Amy Silverman, parent, author and advisory board member of National Center on Disability and Journalism
