DD Day is "Developmental Disabilities Day at the Legislature."
Join us in Annapolis for an opportunity to advance the grassroots movement for people with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities (I/DD).
Every day tens of thousands of Marylanders with I/DD are impacted by the public policy decisions made by the Legislature--the amount of funding available for DD services, civil rights issues like housing and transportation accessibility, education (including higher education) availability, for instance, are but some of the issues affecting those with I/DD.
This is an opportunity to help your Legislators understand the real life consequences of their decisions!
At DD Day, you will learn more about the 2016 hot topics in disability policy, then go to the House and Senate Office buildings to meet with your elected officials and their staff to discuss critical disability issues and to share your real life experiences.
The featured legislation includes ABLE Act, Equal Employment Opportunity Act, Waiting List, Direct Support Staff Wage, Governor's Proposed Budget and more!
