Justice for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Abstract: This is part 2 of 18 in a series of videos from the National Goals in Research, Policy, and Practice meeting. The meeting aimed to advance a research agenda that influences policy and practice for and with people who have intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). An individual with a disability who is also an advocacy specialist shares her story of how she got involved with being a part of the self-advocacy movement and becoming an advocate. She describes two cases that made an impact on her. One involving an individual with down syndrome who died during an altercation with police officers and the other involving an individual with I/DD being incarcerated. Run time: 3 minutes 44 seconds.
