From Institution to Inclusion: The Journey to Disability Rights – Glenmoore

May 27, 2015
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

In this three-part historical exhibit, the century-long struggle for equal rights is seen through the lends of the infamous Pennhurst state institution, whose court-ordered closure in 1986 sparked a revolution for people with disabilities. Join us as we look at the past, present and future of the self-advocacy movement.
