Organizers Forum: Olmstead's 20th Anniversary!





Twenty years ago this month, on June 22, 1999, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in L.C. v. Olmstead that people with disabilities have a right to live in the community, and that government has a responsibility to provide supports to make that possible. The Olmstead decision has been used to protect home attendant programs and get people out of nursing homes and other institutions. Join the call to learn what is Olmstead, what are people doing around the country to get people out of institutions, and what can organizers do to honor Olmstead.  

For the first time, we'll be on video! Click the Zoom link above and turn on your webcam, or you can just call in from your phone. Unfortunately we will not have the online conference line available as in prior months. Please test your webcam and speakers before the call. 


Speakers:

Bob Kafka, revered ADAPT activist, will teach participants about Olmstead. Other speakers to be announced. 




Accommodations & CART: 


  • The call will have real-time captioning (CART) at: https://2020archive.1capapp.com/event/forum/. No username and password needed, when you log on at the time of the call.
  • To ask questions via CART: Sign-in to the chat function on the right side of the transcript and type your question. One of the call facilitators will read questions posted there. You can also type questions through the Zoom video portal.

  • Because we want to maximize the generously donated CART services, we will begin the call promptly at 1:00 p.m. and end the call promptly at 2:00 p.m. Eastern.
  • Thank you to the National Disability Leadership Alliance for sponsoring the captioning of this call. Thank you to Senior and Disability Action for providing the video conference service.

  • If you need additional accommodations to participate in the call, please let us know as soon as possible.
