On June 30 from 6:00-8:00 ET, we will be presenting our 6th free monthly ‘Judi’s Room’ in the spirit of Judi Chamberlin who dedicated her life to organizing for human rights. This is a virtual event. Pre-registration is required. Registration details below.
Judi’s Room is a partnership of MindFreedom International and I Love You Lead On. The presenters at this meeting will discuss their invited statements to the United Nations in their world-wide mission for de-institutionalization. The presentations will be followed by a Q&A addressing strategies to create the opportunities for community living rather than congregate living spaces.
