Advocate

special-needs-patients-sedation-dentistryWe believe that each one of us can do extraordinary things to improve people’s lives and build strong communities. With our focus on intellectual developmental disabilities, Ahora y Siempre has a key role to play in advocating for improving disability policies.

Join us and advocate for current disability bills and laws, or consider strengthening an issue that you are passionate about. Your community needs you to have an impact on public policy decisions. Advocating in your community does not simply mean lobbying on a specific piece of legislation.

Effective advocacy requires knowledge of existing law, pending legislation, and the political players and processes as well as the unmet needs of constituents. Here you’ll find the information you’ll need to advocate on all issues that are critical to the intellectual and developmental disability community at the state and federal level. Use this page as resource in keeping yourself informed on disability policy.
