We would like to share with you an article that was written by Kory Earle, President of People First of Canada, and Natalie Spagnuolo, a friend of People First of Canada.
People First of Canada is the national voice for people who have been labeled with an intellectual disability. We have been fighting the institutionalization of people with intellectual disabilities since the movement began in Canada in 1973.
This article covers issues that are important to People First of Canada and to the deinstitutionalization movement as a whole.
The title of the article is Freeing our people: Updates from the long road to deinstitutionalization. It was published this week by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives. It was published in The Monitor magazine.
