International Conference on Self-Determination

The Center for Self Determination is presenting the International Conference on Self-Determination, May 27th to 29th, 2008 in Detroit, Michigan. As described on the Center's website, here is some brief information about the conference:

International perspectives on progressive notions of mental health recovery, family supports, community membership, ending forced impoverishment and system change requirements will be part of the focus of the conference. The meetings will feature leaders from across disability and aging and relate the efforts being made across the world to make freedom a reality for individuals with disabilities.

This conference is dedicated to laying a foundation across disability and aging for moving publicly funded systems of support/care from the paternalism of the past to true equality in the future.
