Sarah’s Inn’s (Not A Book) Book Club is a monthly virtual gathering to share, discuss, and learn together about a wide range of social justice topics and how they intersect with intimate partner violence. With our busy schedules, it can be difficult for many of us to find the time to participate in traditional book club settings. In place of a book, each month we will ask you to view a short video or article before our meeting – one that will never take more than 30 minutes of your time – that we will use to center our discussion. During our conversation, we will share why we believe the month’s topic connects to domestic violence and our work at Sarah’s Inn. Grab your lunch and your laptop, invite a friend, and join us for some great content, conversation, and the chance to connect with fellow community members who share a passion for social justice!
We will discuss an episode from BBC’s Ouch! Podcast about domestic abuse, disability, and the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. This episode includes interviews with disabled survivors of domestic violence and explores how many services and shelters may be inaccessible to disabled victims. Please listen to the podcast before the discussion: “Domestic abuse: ‘I wasn’t allowed to look out of the window,’” https://www.bbc.com/news/av/disability-57015638.
