Disabled people experience abuse and violence at extremely high levels, but this is in effect invisible because it is not acknowledged.
Domestic or any other form of disability violence and abuse is not OK.
Robyn Hunt talks about the New Zealand Disability Clothesline Project.
"The disability clothesline project is a way of breaking the silence about violence and abuse, enabling victims to give creative expression to their experiences as they use clothing as a canvas.
The disability clothesline project will gather our stories and experience; it will bring the invisible into the light."
March 1 A day of mourning for our disabled dead
March 1 is becoming internationally recognised as a day for the disabled community to mourn our dead who have been murdered by members of their own family. The Disability Clothesline is taking part in a trans-Tasman electronic vigil. We are compiling a list of all the deaths we know about in the public domain. We will update this page as we go.
