Editorial from the March 19, 2018 Disability Policy Consortium Weekly Update:
Lead On, ADAPT!
ADAPT is at it again. They are showing, once again, that they hold the high ground in our movement when it comes to putting their money and their bodies where their mouth is. By the time you read this, ADAPT will be in their 11th day outside the home of Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Director, Scott Gottlieb. Since 2016, the FDA has had draft regulations which would ban the use of electric shock devices as therapy on people with disabilities. Commissiomer Gottlieb has refused to release the regulations.
For too long, we have been fighting to shut down the Judge Rotenberg Center in Canton. Torture is not treatment!
You can follow ADAPT here.
You can donate here. They can use your support. Consider making a donation to help our courageous brothers and sisters.
We at the DPC say, in the words of the immortal Justin Dart “Lead On, ADAPT!”
