MEJC In the News

MPR News with Angela Davis invited MEJC Associate Director Marit Peterson to join the conversation about conservatorships. The Free Britney movement has brought the issue of conservatorships to the public’s attention in new and important ways. We are pleased to provide some expertise in the area and help explore solutions.

You can hear that conversation here. 

MEJC advocates for protections that center on individuals’ needs. Marit Peterson, associate director of the Minnesota Elder Justice Center, asserts in the conversation: “This kind of change that really centers an individual and really focuses on how we might support an individual’s ability to make decisions that are available to them — that kind of change is very welcome.”
