Annual Willowbrook Lecture – Disability Activism Zoom Event @ Join us on Zoom!
Apr 14 @ 6:00 pm

Avoiding the Next Willowbrook: Lessons Learned about Activism from Parents

This online Zoom event presents experiences of parents whose children lived at the Willowbrook State School. Included is what happened to their children at Willowbrook and how the parents became activists participating in the events that led to the closure of the institution. Parents also describe a lifetime of activism and what might be helpful today to people with disabilities, parents, and families. Opportunities will be available for attendees to get involved.

This Zoom event is open to everyone. People with disabilities, their families and friends, advocates, and professionals in the field are encouraged to register.

Contact Chris Hale for more information at chris.hale@csi.cuny.edu.

Sponsored by the Department of Educational Studies and the Office of Sustainable Community Planning. This is a PG/CC CLUE event.
