On June 2, disability rights advocates rallied in Boston and Canton to protest the continued abusive practices at the Judge Rotenberg Center (JRC).
This is an excellent write-up by my friend Lucy Berrington! I was in attendance at the Democratic State Convention at that time, so could not add my body as a JRC protester, but I was there in spirit. I approached several legislators who were at the Convention to support efforts to close down the JRC. One of them told me he had indeed gone there and received the “Level 1” (mildest) shock in a demo, and he called it “horrible!”
You will be hearing about other efforts that I and others will be undertaking over the coming months to press for action at both the state and federal level to end this barbaric practice once and for all.
