Crowd rallies for people with disabilities

Posted by wlpo on May 19, 2009

Moving people with disabilities out of institutions and into their own homes is one of the goals of a statewide effort headed toward Springfield.

A crowd of people with disabilities and their supporters rallied outside of the Eagle’s Lodge in Peru Tuesday afternoon.

It’s part of Freedom Quest, a push to let people with disabilities have more freedom and support from the state. The group included people who are traveling from the Quad Cities to the state capital.
