Join us to learn unique issues facing people with IDD in the criminal justice system and what The Arc’s National Center on Criminal Justice and Disability (NCCJD) is doing to address them.  NCCJD is a 10-year old center housed within The Arc of the United States that provides advocacy and education on the topic of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities involved in the system as either victims, defendants or as incarcerated individuals.  The Center offers the Department of Justice funded Pathways to Justice training program that creates Disability Response Teams to proactively address crisis situations before they arise.  This webinar will provide data on why this is an urgent issue, ideas on how to address more common concerns, and inquire about topics participants want to learn more about regarding criminal justice issues in upcoming webinars.

Leigh Anne McKingsley is the Senior Director of Disability and Justice Initiatives at The Arc of the United States where she founded and directs The Arc’s National Center on Criminal Justice and Disability (NCCJD), the first national center in the U.S. to address both victim and suspect/defendant issues concerning people with IDD.

Joshua B. Branch is the Attorney and Program Manager at The Arc’s National Center on Criminal Justice and Disability.  He has worked predominantly in justice reform policies and programmatic impact work.
