Conservatorships and Disability Rights with Judith Snedeger, Morgan Whitlach, Elysia Mancini Duerr and Laura Butler

In this episode, Judy is chatting with Judith Snedeger, a disabled woman from Kentucky who was put under guardianship and stripped of her rights once she turned 18. With the support from a whole team of people including from one of our other guests, Laura Butler from My Choice Kentucky, Judith successfully fought to terminate her guardianship. Along with Laura and Judith, Judy is joined by Elysia Macini Duerr who is a Staff Attorney at Disability Rights Pennsylvania and Morgan Whitlach who is the Legal Director of Quality Trust for Individuals with Disabilities. She also serves as the Lead Project Director of the National Resource Center for Supported Decision-Making
