Don’t Miss: Virtual Roundtables on Involuntary Institutionalization During Disasters

Share this page

As National Preparedness Month comes to a close, ANCOR is highlighting an invitation shared by the Administration on Community Living (ACL) because disability issues are often underdiscussed during disasters or emergencies.

As shared in the ACL announcement:

“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.
