For as long as time, people with disabilities have been left out of conversations about our services, caregiving, education, rights, and all other aspects of life. We have had to fight to have our voices heard over parents, providers, and allies. We should be able to speak for ourselves and our communities, but are too-often left out of important conversations that directly impact our lives.
Last session, Representative Pollet dropped the Nothing About Us Without Us Act. If passed, the Nothing About Us Without Us Act will require any group established by the legislature whose activities are related to people with disabilities to have representation of those with direct lived experience related to the issues being addressed. We are building a coalition around this bill that will meet weekly during session, on Tuesdays from 12-12:30pm.
