It's On! A Look-back at DRNC's 2024 Disability Advocacy Conference

Disability Rights North Carolina celebrated the 25th anniversary of the Olmstead decision at our annual statewide conference: It’s ON! Olmstead Now in NC. In commemorating this landmark legal decision, we and members of the disability community reflected on two and a half decades of advocating for the rights of people with disabilities to live and receive services in their community. DRNC recognizes that there is much more work to be done and the call for action cannot wait. Together we can make it happen, It’s ON!
