Members of three disability rights groups are hoping to gain Oxford’s input Thursday as to the needs and concerns of people with all types of disabilities.
A community “listening event” will be held at 1:30 p.m. Thursday in the auditorium of the Oxford Convention Center. The Disability Partners’ Community Forums is being co-hosted by the Disability Rights Mississippi; the University of Southern Mississippi’s Institute for Disability Studies; and the Mississippi Council on Developmental Disabilities. All three agencies are funded by the federal Administration on Developmental Disabilities. (August 10, 2010, Page 1)
