Legislative Self Advocacy During the Pandemic
Connecting Our Voices of Inclusion with Legislators & Policymakers While Staying Safe and Socially Distant
A Video Premier and Virtual Panel Discussion:
Our Voices, a Southeastern Virginia Self-Advocacy Group and members of the A Life Like Yours Self-Advocacy Alliance, will premier two videos funded through a grant from the Virginia Board for People with Disabilities.
Following the premier, Our Voices members will participate in panel discussion moderated by Founder and CEO of 6 Wheels Consulting, Matthew Shapiro. They will discuss their experience producing the videos and the importance of reaching our legislators with compelling messages of inclusion and funding for individualized supports.
