From Institution to Inclusion:
The Journey to Disability Rights

In this three-part historical exhibit, the century-long struggle for equal rights is
seen through the lens of the infamous Pennhurst state institution, whose court ordered
closure in 1986 sparked a revolution for people with disabilities. Join us
as we look at the past, present and future of the self-advocacy movement.
