This year, the Developmental Disabilities Coalition is coordinating a week of virtual advocacy and opportunities for information and connection with legislators from February 9-12.
To kick things off, we will be holding our main DD Days event on Tuesday, February 9th, from 9 to 11 AM. If you have participated in DD Day in downtown Annapolis in years past, this is your opportunity to take part online, from home in 2021. This year, the event will be FREE to attendees due to a generous grant from The Developmental Disabilities Council, and hard work/coordination from all members of the DD Coalition!
From Tuesday to Thursday, you can also make an impact through your advocacy on social media! Each day has a theme for you to share your story with friends, family, and legislators. The themes each day are:
Additionally, information on other virtual advocacy opportunities during the week will be posted on the Maryland Developmental Disabilities Council website as we get closer to the headliner event! English and Spanish Closed Captioning will be available for those who need it on February 9.
For any questions or accommodations to support your participation, please contact Luc Chausse, Director of Advocacy and Outreach at The Arc Maryland, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Members of the Maryland Developmental Disabilities Coalition are The Arc Maryland, Disability Rights Maryland, The Maryland Association of Community Services, The Maryland Developmental Disabilities Council, and People on the Go of Maryland.
