NLACRC Celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the Lanterman Act
Lanterman Board Member Yudy Mazariegos and Executive Director Melinda Sullivan attended a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Lanterman Developmental Disabilities Services Act hosted by North Los Angeles County Regional Center.
This celebration included a viewing of "We’re Here to Speak for Justice," a documentary on the founding of the regional center system. Carol Liu, former state senator, was also honored at the event and recognized as a tireless advocate for people with developmental disabilities during her terms.
Assemblymember Adrin Nazarian (46th District) was in attendance as well and stated that the documentary should be required viewing. He also encouraged regional center families to connect with their local representatives.
