On Wednesday, June 8, 2022, our friends at PA ADAPT demanded Pennsylvania lawmakers find find and free David Italiano, a disabled person who was disappeared by his guardian for two years.

They risked arrest to demand a meeting with Secretary Torres who heads the Department of Aging in PA to ask what are you going to do to help people who are forced into abusive guardianships and conservatorships?

One recording of a livestream by a local activist is currently available on Facebook here.

MindFreedom International has issued an ongoing Shield Alert for David Italiano with our partner Roads to Freedom Center for Independent Living.

Several attorneys filed an Amicus Brief on behalf of David, but we still don’t know where he is. MindFreedom needs your help to find and free David Italiano and tell lawmakers we won’t be silent. People with disabilities have the right to live outside institutions. People have a right to reject psychiatric interventions which they find harmful or ineffective!
