WE CAN DO THIS
The Natalie Project (#ustoo) is a family-driven sexual assault prevention advocacy organization whose mission is to raise awareness that the rate of sexual assault amongst people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) is of epidemic levels due to a vulnerable system. The Project empowers caregivers with effective planning tools to manage suspected abuse and builds a community of advocates for systemic change.
The work revolves around bringing about awareness to the issue through social media and strategic partnerships, empowering families with a toolkit to manage suspected abuse, building a community of support for survivors online and advocating for systems change.
