On Monday, April 30, WCVB Channel 5 Boston featured the important story of the ongoing efforts to create a disability abuse registry that would track all direct care workers substantiated of abuse. Currently, there is no such measure in place that would prevent accused workers from simply taking another job elsewhere.
We thank the Chan family and the Joyce family for their bravery in sharing their stories, and their commitment to pursuing justice for their children and all individuals with I/DD. A special thanks also to Senator Mike Moore and Representative Linda Dean Campbell for all they have done for this important legislation so far.
