Where do YOU stand?

— filed under: , , , ,

The Mental Patients Liberation Alliance (The Alliance) invites you to join with other proponents of human rights in mental health on Friday, November 14, 2014 and STAND UP to NAMI-NYS and oppose its unanimous and unequivocal support for Bill H.R. 3717.

With sweeping disregard for the avalanche of concerns detailed by thousands of people with relevant lived experiences in New York State and nationwide, NAMI-NYS will “stand united” to honor Rep. Tim Murphy with their Legislative Champion Award.
 
NAMI-NYS has drawn a line
 
The Alliance has reserved a hotel room at the Desmond Hotel and Conference Center, 660 Albany Shaker Road, Albany, New York for November 13 and 14, 2014.  This offers on-sight space for participants to organize, plan and further develop an Active Response.
 
A conference room is reserved nearby at the Holiday Inn, 205 Wolf Road for the day of November 14 to hold teach-ins. The teach-in opportunity is hosted by The Alliance and the National Empowerment Center.  A round table discussion will begin at 10 a.m. to further organize. Invitations have been extended to several organizations to provide information around the Murphy Bill, such as: individual and united efforts to challenge the bill, lack of constitutionality, international opposition, and other pertinent topics.  Information will be updated as specific segments are scheduled.  
 
In addition to the teach-ins, individuals and groups are planning diverse activities throughout the day, such as information sharing/distribution, outreach to NAMI members, and press conferences.
 
Participants will gather together at the Desmond Hotel at 5:00 p.m., Friday, November 14 to demonstrate solidarity in opposition to NAMI-NYS and the Murphy Bill.

Cindi Fisher, mother of psychiatric survivor

Cindi Fisher has fought for years for her son, who has experienced forced psychiatric drugging and other human rights violations in the State of Washington. She has even held protest fasts on her son's behalf (see photo of Day One). Cindi says: "In the past, advocating for my 33-year-old psychiatric survivor son over the years has been very frustrating and has sometimes felt hopeless! Now, as a member of MindFreedom, I feel I have the voice of thousands to join me. My effectiveness and awareness as an advocate has indeed multiplied a thousand times. Thank you David and MindFreedom for your many years of work to build such a powerful and empowering organization!"
