Tenney will be joined by lawyer and survivor activist Tina Minkowitz to talk about human rights. Tina is a leading voice internationally for the rights of users and survivors of psychiatry, and has been influential in creating revolutionary new standards in international law. - What are human rights, what is a human rights convention? - What is the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) and why is it important to people who have been psychiatrized? - What is shadow reporting? - How can we use human rights advocacy to end psychiatric oppression?

Tina Minkowitz was one of the drafters of the CRPD, and has contributed extensively to the development of norms related to legal capacity, the freedom from disability-based detention, and the freedom from forced psychiatric interventions as a form of torture and ill-treatment. She is the International Representative of the World Network of Users and Survivors of Psychiatry and the founder and President of the Center for the Human Rights of Users and Survivors of Psychiatry.
