Invitation: Virtual Roundtable Series on Involuntary Institutionalizations Before, During & After Disasters

The National Council on Disability (NCD) and the National Disability Rights Network (NDRN) invite you to join an upcoming Virtual Roundtable Series on Involuntary Institutionalizations Before, During & After Disasters / Emergencies.

This virtual roundtable series seeks input from representatives from Centers for Independent Living (CILs) and Protection & Advocacy (P&A) agencies on collaborative approaches that address involuntary institutionalizations throughout disasters. Inspired by the recently released NCD report, Preserving Our Freedom: Ending Institutionalization of People with Disabilities During and After Disasters, conversations will be focused on collective next steps for P&As and CILs.

Join 1 of 4 virtual roundtable discussions for conversation about prevention, advocacy, monitoring / investigations, community integration / re-entry and follow up resources / services. With such objectives in mind, participants are highly encouraged to come prepared to share their perspectives and suggested strategies for how we can best coordinate our efforts moving forward.

Register online.
