Responding to the Supreme Court's Rollback of Civil Rights
Recent decisions by the United States Supreme Court have severely limited the rights of persons with disabilities. During this workshop, presenters will review some of the key Supreme Court decisions affecting the rights of persons with disabilities and will discuss how advocates can fight back. Strategies to be discussed include: multi-media mechanisms for education and outreach, weighing in on judicial nominations, and drafting and advocating for legislation at the state level. Excerpts from the film "Take Back the Courts" will be shown.
