Does what happens in Washington, D.C., really matter? You bet! Every day millions of Americans with intellectual and developmental disabilities are impacted by the public policy decisions – big and small – made by their representatives in Congress.
Each year, hundreds of advocates attend the Disability Policy Seminar in Washington, D.C., to learn more about and discuss the hottest topics in disability public policy. We invite you to join us April 15 - 17 for an opportunity to advance the grassroots movement for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and make sure your elected officials know what’s important to you.
Monday and Tuesday, April 15 and 16, are filled with informative in-depth sessions from disability policy experts and opportunities to network with others from your state. We’ll also have a “newcomers” track with sessions designed for people who are new to federal public policy advocacy to answer questions and give you the background you need. The event culminates on Wednesday, April 17, with a breakfast on Capitol Hill before you personally meet with your elected representatives and make a case for their cause supported by information about the issues provided during the Seminar.
Register now and book your room at the Grand Hyatt in downtown Washington, D.C., for a special early registration rate at www.disabilitypolicyseminar.org and find out more details about the stimulating program on tap for this year’s event. But act soon – special rates on rooms ends March 12.
