Zoom Text:

It is important that history does not repeat itself and that we remember the lessons we've learned.

The struggles of the past half century have taught us:

  • Not to open any new institutions;
  • To keep families together and allow individuals to make their own decisions;
  • That all lives have value;
  • That all people have a right to live free from abuse, neglect and injuries;
  • No human being should have to surrender his or her liberty to receive necessary services and supports;
  • That people with developmental disabilities have the right to both personal safety and liberty.
