  • Disability Day On The Hill

    Sunday, March 7, 2021

    Hello Disability Day On The Hill Helpers and Participants:

    We are almost there. Get excited!

    Your response has been terrific.   DDH has grown from 34 meetings to 45 meeting with legislators.  We have also grown to 34 helpers and 41 self-advocates/advocates.  YOU are the reason this event will be successful.  I worked to put helpers with the advocates who match.  I also tried to not to overload any of our helpers.

    Notes to Everyone:

    • I have attached talking points for these areas of interest for The Arc Tennessee: Table changing station, Text to 911 bill, DSP wage increase bill, and the death penalty bill.  You do not need to discuss these.  Discuss whatever topic is important to you.  The talking points are available in case they are also your area of interest.
  • Notes to Helpers:

    • Please use the attached helper guide for a compass on how to facilitate your meeting.

    Thanks everyone.  I hope this is close to what you all wanted.  Contact me if you have any questions.
