Legislative Advocacy

Take Action!

We are committed to promoting and advocating for the rights of people with disabilities so they can take their place as full citizens within their communities and have equal opportunities to pursue life, liberty and happiness. We provide training, information, and support to empower individuals with disabilities and their families as well as professionals in the field to advocate for responsible programs and policies in the legislative/policy arena.

Get Involved:

Learn how you can become a more effective advocate through trainings, committee involvement and civic engagement

Policy Partners Training:

We offer a powerful FREE training program that teaches you how to share your knowledge and experiences with policy makers and influence public policies.

Public Policy Outreach Committee:

This group reviews and distributes information about public policies/legislation that impact individuals who experience disabilities and their families and supports their advocacy efforts.

Virtual Candidate Event:

Recently, candidates from two of New Hampshire’s State Senate districts spoke with a panel of individuals who either experience a disability, or have a family member who does.

Issues that impact those in the disability community were discussed and stories were told that describe what it is like to have a disability.

Please watch the videos below of this year’s Virtual Candidate Event:
