Public and Environmental Health Cleanup Protocols, ACLU of Utah Lawsuit, Alternative Paths to Recovery, Meet Your Maker

Hosted by Billy Palmer and Lara Jones, tonight's RadioActive included:

  • Anna Thomas of the ACLU of Utah, which today filed a lawsuit challenging Utah laws that prevent people with disabilities from having full access to our state courts. Do you have a story to share about your own guardianship court battle? Do you have a disability and feel strongly about preserving the rights of people in your community to make decisions for themselves? Then share your story. Your experiences could help inform the public about why this lawsuit is so important.
