Meeting Your Protection and Advocacy System

  • Foothills Higher Education Center 2128 South Sterling Street Morganton, NC, 28655 United States (map)

Every State and Territory has a Protection and Advocacy System for People with Disabilities (P&A). The P&A provides legal representation, investigates and monitors for abuse and neglect, and informs people with disabilities of their rights and the resources available to them. The purpose of this presentation is for participants to develop an understanding the resources available through Disability Rights NC (the North Carolina P&A), and how to use its resources to advocate for and enforce the rights of people with disabilities. Attendees will also receive information about the legal rights of individuals with disabilities and tips on how to be an effective advocate for themselves and others.
