2020 Disability Policy Seminar: Information and Registration

In March 2020, the Autism Society will partner with Disability Policy Seminar, offering passionate advocates, self-advocates, experts, and professionals in the disability community to come together and learn about key issues that affect them most.

We need you in Washington, DC to advocate for the programs that people with disabilities rely on to make life in the community possible. The Disability Policy Seminar is your chance to make an impact!

This year, in addition to important legislative battles and topics, we are also heading into an election and census year. Both have significant implications for people with disabilities. Learn how you can ensure the disability community is counted in the census and be ready to exercise your right to vote!

The event is packed with informative sessions from experts in the field, and opportunities to discuss key issues with others from your state. After two days of training and learning, attendees start day three with a breakfast kickoff, followed by a day on Capitol Hill for meetings with their Members of Congress.
