We Want You! Learn to Advocate for Policy Change

Anyone who has a disability or is closely related to someone with a disability has seen the disparities that still exist almost 25 years after the ADA was enacted. In order to create positive changes for the future, we need to learn how to empower/educate each other on the ways to create change rather than sit back and think that it can’t be done.

1. Learn what empowerment and advocacy are.

2. Learn at least 2-3 ways to help create policy changes.

3. Be able to name at least 2 state and 1 national groups/associations to join to assist in advocacy.

4 Learn how to call or e-mail your Congress people with confidence.
