P&As and CILs: Join this Virtual Roundtable on Involuntary Institutionalizations Before, During, and After Disasters

September 27, 2019

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

This 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 focus on collective next steps for P&As and CILs.

REGISTER for one of four virtual roundtable discussions about prevention, advocacy, monitoring/investigations, community integration/re-entry, and follow up resources/services. We encourage participants to share their perspectives and suggested strategies for how we can best coordinate our efforts moving forward.
