June 22, 2022

According to writer Grace Dow, “People with disabilities may be unable to live in their communities without cases like Olmstead v. L.C.

I wouldn’t be able to go shopping, or to the movie theater. I want to make my own decisions, and living in my apartment allows me to do that.” Read the full blog post here.
