Disability Policy Seminar Successfully Concluded

The 43rd annual Disability Policy Seminar, held earlier this month, proved to be one of the largest ever with more than 900 people registered. The opening plenary celebrated the 20th anniversary of the Olmstead Supreme Court decision. Representative Debbie Dingell (D-MI) gave a key note address to kick off the second day of training. The seminar included a packed two days of panels on issues affecting people with disabilities, concluding with the all-important Hill visits with Members of Congress. This annual event is co-sponsored by The Arc, the American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, the Association of University Centers on Disabilities, the National Association of Councils on Developmental Disabilities, Self Advocates Becoming Empowered, and United Cerebral Palsy. The co-sponsors were also joined by the Sibling Leadership Network, Autism Society of America, and National Down Syndrome Congress as promotional partners. Next year, the Disability Policy Seminar will take place on March 23-25 and the hope is to increase advocacy and set a new attendance record. Visit the event website to view presentations and materials from the 2019 seminar.
