Tell Congress to Support a Historic Investment in Disability Services

For years, the service system that people with IDD and their families rely on has needed an update. Now, the Administration has proposed a historic investment in disability services as a part of a COVID-19 economic recovery. Tell Congress to provide funding to reduce waiting lists, increase direct support wages, and eliminate gaps in service.

Registration Open: 2021 National Convention

Our 2021 National Convention will both honor the struggles of the past year and renew our hope as we look to the future of the disability rights movement. The event will feature dozens of speakers from across the disability sector, including family members and advocates, policy experts, and innovators.
