Voter Competency and Denying the Right to Vote: Part 1

Date: Tuesday June 16, 2015

Time: 2:00pm - 3:30pm

Registration: [Click here]

Voting is a fundamental right and a primary tenet to American democracy. Yet, citizens with disabilities are denied the right to vote in numerous states across the nation on the basis of guardianship, developmental disability, or mental illness. The first session in this two-part webinar series will consider the impact of state voter eligibility laws and biases that create barriers to voting. The Co-Directors of SABE’s Voter Project will discuss developmental disability, guardianship laws, and denial of the right to vote. Disability Rights Ohio will present on their voter outreach efforts, including how to educate voters on retaining and restoring the individual right to vote. Rhode Island Disability Law Center will describe a successful appeal to the Rhode Island Board of Elections to reinstate the voting rights of two men found not guilty by reason of insanity.

Speakers: Nancy Ward and Leanne Roth, SABE Voter Project/National Technical Assistance Center for Voting and Cognitive Access,,, 708-465-2368 

Jason Boylan, Disability Rights Ohio,, 614-466-7264

Mental Health and the New Home and Community Based Services Regulation

Date: Thursday, June 18, 2015

Time: 2pm Eastern Time

A webinar sponsored by SAMHSA and presented by Bazelon and NDRN will take place Thursday, June 18, 2015 at 2pm Eastern Time called “Mental Health and the New Home and Community Based Services Regulation.”

Description: The National Disability Rights Network (NDRN) and the Bazelon Center for Mental Health Law will present on the new Home and Community Based Setting (HCBS) settings rule and its implications for mental health services provided under Medicaid. States are currently developing transition plans to bring their Medicaid HCBS systems into compliance with the new rule.

The webinar will discuss the requirements of the rule and CMS guidance, describe trends in state transition plans (including those that impact mental health services), and elaborate on how the mental health community can become involved in the transition planning process. The discussion will also touch on the implications of the rule for employment.

Presenters: Alison Barkoff, Elizabeth Priaulx
