Everyone has rights! And when it comes to the human services field, Human Rights Committees (HRC) play an integral role. These committees promote and protect the human, civil, and legal rights of people with disabilities who are receiving services.

So what are the roles and responsibilities of an HRC? Who should all be the members of it? How can you avoid common pitfalls in both establishing and maintaining the committee?

In this webinar, you’ll receive answers to all these questions and many more! We share strategies you can use for creating your committee, ensuring it’s asking the right questions, and avoiding ‘danger signs’ that regularly occur in the disability services system. We’ll also share some eye-opening data about the relationship between fair treatment and overall quality of life. You’ll leave this presentation with specific action steps you can put in place “right” away!

CQL will be using Zoom’s built-in live transcription (closed captioning) features during the webinar. If you need any additional reasonable accommodations, you can share those in the Zoom registration form. Any requests need to be submitted at least two weeks prior to the date of the webinar.
