Survivors of Huronia: Dialogue on disability rights
Panel discussion and book launch
Former residents of Huronia, who have experienced severe violations of their rights, will speak about their lives and advocacy work to advance disability justice. From 1876 until 2009, the Huronia Regional Centre was the largest residential facility for people with intellectual disabilities in Canada.
After the panel discussion and a public question-and-answer session, authors Kate Rossiter and Jen Rinaldi will present their book Institutional Violence and Disability: Punishing Conditions.
