MFI letter to Highlander about MLK, IAACM & Kristina Yates

Highlander is an educational center that has helped train luminaries including Martin Luther King, Jr. and Rosa Parks. MindFreedom has held two international strategy conferences there. On 1 September 2007 a thousand people are at Highlander celebrating their 75th anniversary. Among the volunteers is MindFreedom activist Kristina Yates, whose heritage lies not far from Highlander in Appalachia. Kristina intends to let celebrants know about the relevance of Highlander to MindFreedom, and the connections to MLK and his call for the IAACM. You may download a PDF of a letter from MFI to Highlander.

Dorothy Dundas

While institutionalized for three years as an adolescent in the 1960's, MindFreedom member Dorothy Washburn Dundas was labeled a "schizophrenic" and forced to undergo 40 combined insulin coma-electroshock "treatments." Dorothy says, "I experienced and witnessed many atrocities. I believe that luck, determination, and my own anger and one compassionate advocate were my best friends on the road to my ultimate survival and freedom." Through a number of op-ed pieces, she has voiced her opposition to abusive psychiatric practices. Her poster, "Behind Locked Doors," which she created from her hospital records, is used in training programs. Dorothy lives in the Boston area where she has raised her four wonderful children. She founded and is the sole driver in her "safe, friendly and reliable" car service called The Crystal Lake Express.
