Michigan Supreme Court Justice Richard Bernstein to Address Disability Rights Advocates
For more than 30 years the MDRC has advocated for people with disabilities at the community, state and national levels to ensure they are fully included in community life, including employment, housing and the opportunity to live the lives they choose.
Justice Bernstein, blind since birth, is a prime example of what people with disabilities can achieve with the right supports,” said Norm DeLisle, MDRC executive director. “The Michigan Disability Rights Coalition recognizes disability as a natural part of human diversity and, like Justice Bernstein, is proudly feisty and noncompliant in taking on the status quo to ensure full inclusion.”
MDRC Staff Person has issued a set of documents as part of her health care collaboration that outline important dates in the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, and discussions of important policy issues for Michigan in the future.
