Help us keep the victories coming! Donate online to Disability Rights Ohio
January 24, 2013 / restraint and seclusion
Last week, we told you about our two big wins: the Ohio Department of Education's changes to the seclusion and restraint policy and rule in Ohio's public schools and the Ohio Supreme Court's unanimous opinion that individuals under guardianship have a right to a lawyer during their review hearings.
When these cases came through, our staff at Disability Rights Ohio headquarters literally cheered. It was cause for celebration. These victories are a big deal to us and an even bigger deal to individuals with disabilities, both now and in the future. We believe people with disabilities should be allowed to participate in the community and have a say in how they live, just like people who live without a disability. There is always more to do, but we need your help.
Disability Rights Ohio can now accept donations via PayPal. You can find the PayPal button on our Donate page. Please consider making a donation yourself or come up with a creative way to raise money for our cause. Thank you so much for your support!
