Description

“Last of the Institutions” is a multi-part series exposing Washington state's outdated social policy of continued segregation and isolation of people with a developmental disability through institutionalization. Despite decades of research showing institutionalization is detrimental to people, and the Dept. of Justice's stance that segregation of the disabled is a form of unlawful discrimination, Washington operates more institutions and houses more people in them than nearly every other state in the country. http://www.king5.com/story/news/local/investigations/2015/12/03/last-institutions/76123472/ https://vimeo.com/k5investigators/last-of-the-institutions
