Be a part of history! In this important election year, Disability Rights Wisconsin along with other disability and aging organizations have come together to sponsor a Candidates Forum on Aging and Disability Long Term Care, featuring the candidates for Governor and US Senate (all invited). Scheduled for July 30 in Green Bay from 11 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. This is an historic opportunity to hear from statewide candidates about the issues that affect our lives, our futures and the future of our State. Registration fees are on a sliding scale, $10-$35 and transportation assistance is available for people with disabilities and their families. There are also opportunities for organizations to join as co-sponsors to help underwrite costs for the forum and provide additional scholarships so that as many people with disabilities and their families can attend. This is a statewide event, with statewide importance. Sponsors currently include Coalition of Wisconsin Aging Groups (CWAG), Disability Rights Wisconsin (DRW), the Board for People with Developmental Disabilities (BPDD), Survival Coalition, Community Alliance of Providers of Wisconsin (CAPOW), the Brain Injury Association of Wisconsin (BIAW) and the Wisconsin Disability Vote Coalition (WDVC). Please make plans to attend and we hope to see you there!
