Annual Willowbrook Lecture: "Avoiding the Next Willowbrook: Lessons Learned about Activism from Parents"

This online Zoom event presents experiences of parents whose children lived at the Willowbrook State
School. Included is what happened to their children at Willowbrook and how the parents became activists
participating in the events that led to the closure of the institution. Parents also describe a lifetime of
activism and what might be helpful today to people with disabilities, parents, students, and families.
