2010 and Beyond

Anniversary of Olmstead Decision

President Barack Obama

On the 12th Anniversary of the Olmstead decision, June 22, 2011, President Barack Obama reaffirmed the thrust of this landmark United States Supreme Court ruling, recognizing that "the unjustified institutional isolation of people with disabilities was a form of unlawful discrimination" under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and recommitted his administration to end all forms of discrimination.

The Path to Freedom: The Road Home is a compelling, comprehensive video, sponsored by the Detroit-Wayne Mental Health Authority, Michigan Department of Community Health, that celebrates the 30 year history of Community Living Services (CLS) in Michigan (1983-2013), and the stories of how people with developmental disabilities have triumphed over that time period.
