Thank you for your responses!

The AVID Program at Disability Rights Washington focuses on improving the conditions, treatment, services, and reentry for people with disabilities who are incarcerated in our state's jails and prisons, as well as those who reside at the Special Commitment Center. AVID works to ensure that those who are reentering the community have their voices heard and their rights protected.

Priorities addressed by this program include: 1) Deaf and Hard of Hearing Accommodations in Jails, Prisons, and the Special Commitment Center; 2) Successful Transitions: Prisons and Jails to Community; 3) Prevent Inappropriate Segregation of Inmates; 4) Improving Conditions in Juvenile Detention Facilities, Jails, Prisons, and the Special Commitment Center; 5) Appropriate Medical Care for Inmates with Disabilities; 6) Quality, Available Advocacy; 7) Decriminalization of Disability; 8) Abuse and Neglect Response Effectiveness; and 9) Delays in Competency Evaluations and Restoration Services.
