Presenter: Jim Conroy, Pennhurst Memorial & Preservation Alliance
Time 1:00pm
In just 50 years, the nation has moved away from places like Pennhurst. And people are much better off. We know that, because the largest and longest study of movement from institution to community was done here. Moreover, few people realize the three most important lawsuits about the rights of people with disabilities all started in Philadelphia. They led to immense improvements in the civil rights of all citizens with disabilities. Things have been very tough in our system during the pandemic. But we can remember to celebrate our victories and work to get the system back on track.
