What an amazing half-hour with disability rights attorney Jonathan Martinis! We discussed Supported Decision Making, the Jenny Hatch story, and his landmark court case that helped bring Supported Decision Making to the forefront of disability rights.
“So supported decision making, it’s a way to level the playing field. It’s a way to give people with disabilities the same rights you and I have. The same rights. Everyone has the same rights we’re all supposed to have as Americans from the declaration of independence to the Americans with disabilities act to the Olmstead decision and the Supreme court. We are all and should be full and equal members of society.”
