This week advocates have been watching the Massachusetts legislature to learn the fate of a possible ban on some of the aversive “treatments” used in places like the Judge Rotenberg Center. Advocates and a few legislators have been working for decades to end what UN reps have referred to as torture. Updates to come.
Advocates continue to seek justice for Kayleb Moon-Robinson as well as keeping up to date on the United Airlines incident and other cases. We are committed to effectively addressing, and educating the public about the root causes of situations like these.
CAN Radio is working on a new line-up for the program’s return from its summer hiatus. New episodes will be airing the first week of July. In the meantime, past episodes are available on demand right here.
Plans are being made for the annual Mind the Gap in Education School Supply Drive. Donations of brand new school supplies, books, educator resources and references, items for students with disabilities and more can be dropped off at locations (TBA) with our large, colorful donation drums. Monetary donations can be made any time right here on our website, or by mail. We’ve served hundreds of students and teachers since the program started, and each year we set a new goal. Stay tuned for more updates.
Coming up on the blog: Pit Bulls and People, School’s Out, Hollywood, Punks and Posers, Tale of Two Advocates, Our Generation (series), breaking news, and more. We welcome guest bloggers. If interested, contact us!
