We Hear You: Talk to the Lawyers, Share Your Stories

The historic Samantha R ruling is exciting news! It means actual change, not just promises, and it is the biggest opportunity yet to improve the lives of thousands of people in NC with intellectual/developmental disabilities (I/DD). You may have questions. And we know you have your own story to share.

We want to hear from you!

Friday, November 18th

  • TWO 60-minute community conversations about the new ruling
  • 12:00pm AND 4:00pm

Emma Kinyanjui and Lisa Grafstein, DRNC counsel for the plaintiffs, will be on-hand to summarize the ruling and answer your questions. We will also offer opportunities for you to briefly share your story, experiences, and needs. Please limit your story to 3 minutes; if you need more time, we can reach out to you separately to talk with you more in-depth.

Get up-to-date before the meeting!
