It already has started, they’re going back into nursing homes, going back into institutions and it’s very hard to get out. They will lose everything if they don’t come together and say what they want and show what they need. You need to tell [the] story, tell your personal story. Janet Evans
Janet Evans describes herself as “the biggest advocate in Pittsburgh!”. Janet found her voice at a young age, when she wanted choice within the segregated setting of the institution in which she lived, and when she wanted to further her education. Janet insisted that she be allowed to live in the community, and built a rich life there with her husband Harry. She continues to advocate for the right to live an everyday life, for herself and others with disabilities.
