Crimes & Brutality Against
People with Disabilities

Do you know the rate of
violent crime
is 5 to 10 times higher
against people
with disabilities than against the general public?

* Many of these crimes are not reported
but when they are the testimony of victims with disabilities are not taken seriously.

* Do you know
there has been
a rise of
police shootings
of people with
mental illness
especially poor people
of color?

Because of this there has been
an increase
demand for disability
training of police officers.

A groundbreaking network to bring people with disabilities,
advocates, services providers,
law enforcements and local media together.
There will be panel discussions and presentations by disabled advocates,
SFPD ADA Coordinator and
Resources etc..
