Celebrating the 25th Anniversary of Olmstead

June 22, 2024 marks the 25th Anniversary of the Supreme Court's landmark decision in Olmstead v. L.C. VOR is proud to have helped support Choice in this decision, having submitted an amicus brief that defended the rights of those with the most severe I/DD to receive care in ICF settings as the most integrated environment appropriate to their needs.
 
The Department of Health and Human Services, the Administration for Community Living, and the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice are presenting a celebration of their own on June 20th from 2 - 4 pm (Eastern). We urge our members to register for the event, to view it as it streams live, to see where their interpretations of Olmstead might differ from ours. To register, go to: https://www.zoomgov.com/webinar/register/WN_HyA2zv8BSwuBCXGChGmJZg#/registration
 
We also urge our members to read the Olmstead decision (VOR's amicus is cited on p.605) and to review other Olmstead materials at: https://www.vor.net/get-help/more-resources/item/olmstead-resources-2
