DRC 30th Anniversary Event
On March 12, 2008, DRC celebrated its 30th Anniversary. These 11 videos are the recordings of the event. The headline speakers were Bernard Carabello and Dr. Mike Wilkins. Bernard is a survivor of Willowbrook, an institution where he was wrongfully forced to reside and robbed of his childhood. Bernard is a nationally-known speaker and self-advocate on disability rights. Dr. Mike Wilkins is a former employee of Willowbrook who in 1972 blew the whistle on the atrocities of institutionalizations.

The End The Wait is a campaign that DRC is working on (generously funded by the Kansas Council on Developmental Disabilities) to end the DD Waiting list in Kansas.
