The Southern Illinoisan - 5/14/2024

ANNAThe Egyptian Regional Human Rights Authority of the Illinois Guardianship and Advocacy Commission will meet at 5 p.m. Thursday, May 23, in The Villa-Pizza Villa, 169 E. Vienna St. At that time, they will review and discuss complaints concerning allegations that the rights of persons with disabilities are being violated at private and public facilities that provide mental health or developmental disabilities services.

The Human Rights Authority is a panel of nine citizen volunteers appointed by the commission and empowered by statute to investigate alleged violations of the rights of persons with disabilities. The Human Rights Authority serves all counties throughout Illinois; case investigations ensure the rights of eligible children and adults who have a disability.

Cases tentatively set for this month’s agenda include complaints involving alleged violations of the laws, regulations and other mandates that protect the rights of persons with disabilities.

If you believe the rights of a person with disabilities are being violated, you may report this at the meeting or contact the Disability Rights Manager Kim Conway at 618-833-2013. All complainants’ names are kept confidential.
