The Project

Katherine focused on the failure of the criminal justice system to identify and accommodate individuals with developmental disabilities who have been charged with a crime. Focusing first in Alachua County, Florida, Katherine provided education and resources to those working within the criminal justice system and caretakers of people with MR/DD. Additionally, Katherine created an avenue for all involved to communicate their concerns and ideas.
