The goals of the symposium are:
Invited guests will include national and international leaders, policy makers and thinkers including people needing support and their families. Special guest Margaret “Jenny” Hatch will share her recent personal experience and vision for the future.
The presentations and facilitated discussions will create a roadmap to change thinking and behavior at an individual and systems level that promotes individual autonomy, abilities, preferences, and justice. Your participation will inform future activities through legal representation, self-advocacy, continuing education and training, policy development, and needed research.
