Eighth Annual Disability & Civil Rights Clinic Roundtable
About the Roundtable Discussion
Join us for conversation on Zoom to explore recent legal and policy developments that impact adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. This year, the Roundtable will be organized around the theme of Intersectional Approaches to Inclusion and Advocacy. Topics are subject to change, but may include housing, sexuality, mediation and restorative justice, guardianship, criminal justice, special education, OPWDD and access to services, and the right to family. This year’s keynote presentation will be delivered by Juan Pablo Salazar, expert in the global movement for the rights of persons with disabilities, with emphasis on communications and sports.
Participants will join experts in the field to engage in a facilitated conversation about recent changes and developments in these intersecting areas. As always, the Roundtable will offer a collaborative environment to learn about the latest developments in the law, exchange ideas, establish new community partnerships, and explore solutions for change. A key goal of the Roundtable is for you to contribute your thoughts about issues that affect the disability community and that you believe need to be addressed.
Individuals with disabilities, legal advocates, family members, community organizations, and government entities are encouraged to attend.
Free and Open to the Public.
Please RSVP by January 28.
