Self-Advocates Becoming Empowered
This webinar brings together self-advocates and allies from several of the 13 states in the nation that have closed all institutions. Listen in as speakers discuss lessons learned and what the future holds. Hear how in 2011, Alabama People First worked with allies to become the only state in the entire Southeast to close all institutions. Learn how self-advocates and allies from Advocates For Action are producing a film about the closing of Ladd School in Rhode Island and their current campaign to challenge negative attitudes about people with disabilities. Connect with New Yorkers who are working to eliminate barriers as the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) emboldens the state to close the remaining doors of their institutions.
