Leaving Redfield - A SD PBS Documentary

SDPB_logo_horizontal_centered.png

Everyday we at Aspire strive to create a positive environment for the people with disabilities that we serve where they can direct their lives. For some of the people we serve it hasn’t always been like this.

You can watch a documentary called “Leaving Redfield” about what it was like when the state of South Dakota, prompted by a grassroots movement, de-institutionalized services provided to people with disabilities. It has interviews with people who were at Redfield at the time and what that change was like for them along with some of the people and politicians that were a part of the movement. It will be on PBS on Monday June 10th, 2019 at 9pm.

Learn more about “Leaving Redfield” in this article from the Aberdeen American News.
