With so many powerful advocates in Congress moving on, it is time for the next generation to step up and make a stand. Budget cuts are already threatening to severely limit, or in some instances, completely cut disability benefits through Medicaid, Medicare, and Social Security Disability Insurance. Disability policy is at a crucial turning point. In order to prevent these drastic cuts and program eliminations, we must band together and put a face on Disability issues and show Congress how destructive their actions can be.

Advocates Gather For The 38th Annual Disability Policy Seminar

The 38th annual Disability Policy Seminar (DPS), held last week, proved to be the largest one ever with more than 700 registered participants. The opening plenary featured special guest former Senator Pete Domenici (R-NM) and an engaging panel of staff leaders from the Bipartisan Policy Center, moderated by former Congressman Tony Coelho (D-CA). In the evening, attendees were inspired by a speech by Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) that included a rousing call to advocate for ratification of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

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 as a promotional partner. Next year, DPS will take place on April 13-15 and the hope is to increase advocacy and set a new attendance record.
