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.
