People with disabilities need their voices heard in Washington and Madison.
Since the election it has become clear that there are big changes on the horizon for people with disabilities. Access to healthcare, Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security and Home and Community Based Services are all at stake.
Now, more than ever it is important that people with disabilities have a voice in how, when, and if programs and policies are changed.
At Disability Rights Wisconsin we empower people with disabilities to exercise the full extent of their rights and pursue the greatest possible quality of life.
We work in coalition with people with disabilities, other agencies, and advocates, to ensure that the rights of people with disabilities are protected.
We give voice to their concerns with state and national policymakers – and we have incredibly successful.
This year, Disability Rights Wisconsin strengthened the rights of children with disabilities in the child protective services system through legislative advocacy.
In the coming months we will be working hard to maintain the hard won gains and resist changes that will exclude or segregate people with disabilities or weaken programs that support them.
Join our mission! Now more than ever — FUND OUR VOICE.
