Join us for a live event:
Join Disability Rights California in partnership with Western Regional Advocacy Project to unify an educational and informational campaign to stop any framework that takes away the rights of people with disabilities by placing them under unnecessary court ordered treatment.
At the convening, advocates will provide up-to-date information about what we know about the CARE Court framework. We also seek the input of our community to combat any framework that demands costly resources, strips the rights of people with disabilities, and makes no commitment to provide housing.
Live Captioning, ASL and Spanish Interpreters will be Available.

About this event:
To effectively oppose a costly, unproven court-ordered treatment system that will not end homelessness in California, we need the community and we want to advocate with you.
Who should attend:
This convening is open to self-advocates and advocates who support the fundamental right for people with disabilities to self-determine their medical care and treatment. Attendees should be accountable to advocating on behalf of people with lived experience, especially people who experience mental illness, substance use, homelessness, and/or involvement in the criminal legal system. We would like to partner with you to unify the community in speaking out against any framework that includes court-ordered treatment as a means to end homelessness.
