Underserved TA-Developed Product

Title: Using an Intersectional Lens for Promoting Access and Inclusion  
By: ALSO Consultant Shirley Paceley, MS

In working with “underserved populations,” people may belong to more than one historically oppressed or marginalized group, and experience multiple social inequities. Every group has members with disabilities. This resource developed for grantees funded by the Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) Grants for Outreach and Services to Underserved Populations Program  is intended to promote intersectional thinking and provide insight as to practices and approaches by which people with multiple social identities living with a disability can be included equally in services aimed at supporting survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence.
