Police Brutality and Disability : National Call-In April 7th, 2016

We received the following information and was asked to share for a National Call organized by the National Disability Leadership Alliance. This is a possible opportunity for a cross section of the disability community nationwide in a important issue, and to start a real national dialog. 

On this call, we'll talk about how police brutality is impacting the disability community across the country. In reflection of the alarming statistics on police misconduct against people with disabilities, the speakers will discuss how different systems are setting people up to be in contact with the police and recommended solutions. The call will educate participants on alternatives other than giving police more power.
