DD Awareness & Advocacy Day

Public Policy Project

People with disabilities and their family members are their own best advocates when it comes to educating members of the general public and policymakers. Advancements in public policy are due to advocacy by individuals with disabilities.

The DD Awareness and Advocacy Day grantee will plan and host a day at the Ohio Statehouse for people with disabilities and family members and others. The event will be on the Internet for those who cannot attend in person. Speakers will be invited to talk about different disability issues. Everyone who comes to the Statehouse and wants to talk with their legislator will have a meeting scheduled for them.

Grantee: To be determined
Amount: $35,000
