Disability Rights Mississippi, The Institute for Disability Studies at the University of Southern Mississippi, and the Mississippi Council on Developmental Disabilities will host a community forum Thursday at 1:30 p.m. in the East Mississippi Electric Power Association auditorium, 2128 Highway 39 North.
The forum is an opportunity for individuals with disabilities and their family members to have their voice heard, according to Shirley Walker, outreach coordinator for Disability Rights Mississippi.
Those attending also will be able to learn about programs and resources available in the state, and network and meet others in the area.
Disability Rights Mississippi is interested in hearing about any issues or concerns people have related to a lack of supports or services they receive.
The forum is free of charge. Light refreshments will be offered.
