    The Fourth Annual Disability and Civil Rights Clinic Roundtable will be held to advocate for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities in the right to sexual self-advocacy, housing security, access to government benefits, the right to parent, protection of due process rights and alternatives to guardianship.

    About the Roundtable Discussion
    Join us for breakfast and conversation to explore key issues that have an impact on adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Topics include OPWDD & The Changes Ahead, Criminal Justice, Sexuality & Relationships, Disability & Education, 17-A Guardianship and Supported Decision Making, and Right to Family. Participants will join experts in the field to engage in a facilitated conversation about recent changes and developments in these intersecting areas. As always, the roundtable will offer a collaborative environment to learn about the latest developments in the law, exchange ideas, establish new community partnerships, and explore solutions for change.

    Individuals with disabilities, legal advocates, family members, community organizations, and government entities are encouraged to attend.
