The answer to abuse is transparency and accountability

Over the past months, and again this week, there have been awful, frightening stories coming out of the New York State developmental disability system, and in particular their institutions.

These stories have been highlighted by the New York Times and I would encourage you to go and read them, even though you won’t enjoy the experience.
