Nevada PEP Joins the Disability Community in Mourning the Loss of Lois Curtis

Nevada PEP joins the disability community in mourning the loss of one of our nation’s greatest advocates, Lois Curtis, who passed away on November 3, 2022.  Lois Curtis is remembered as “L.C.” in Olmstead v. L.C., the Supreme Court decision. Olmstead recognized that the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act protect the right of people with disabilities to live in their own homes and receive services in their own communities. An entire generation has grown up since the Olmstead decision – a generation that has always had the right to live, work and participate in their communities.  We commit to continue the advocacy necessary for community integration. Our sincere condolences to Ms. Curtis’ family, friends, and the disability community.
