Protest of Electroshock: Mothers Day Weekend 2011

— filed under:

For several years, simultaneous protests, street theater and other events challenging electroshock human rights violations, have been held by activists in multiple cities on Mothers Day. That's because so many of those on the receiving end of abuse in electroshock are mothers and grandmothers, since shock targets older women.

LaTonya Gibbs: MindFreedom Office Rock Star and Mental Health Consumer

LaTonya says, "I love working for such an 'insanely supportive' organization. MindFreedom is a touchstone for a lot of different commissions that are fighting for human rights, both locally and internationally. This is also an office that practices what it preaches. The director and staff are intent on not letting its members or it's employees lose themselves while trying to 'make a living', if we can help it. We're all human beings and that comes first here." LaTonya works in the MindFreedom office and is a mental health consumer.
