Maryland’s Partners in Policymaking® program prepares adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), parents, and family members of children and adults with IDD to be effective advocates at the local, state, and federal levels.
Through 10 sessions, Partners in Policymaking® participants will learn about what it takes to become powerful agents of systems change; to advance equity and the rights of people with IDD in all aspects of daily life.
Partners in Policymaking is offered free for participants due to the incredible financial and in-kind support of the Maryland Developmental Disabilities Council, People on the Go of Maryland, and The Arc Maryland, with each spot in the program valued at over $5,000. When you join the class, your contribution is your time, which is deeply valued!
Applications for the 2022-2023 Partners in Policymaking program are open until Wednesday, September 14th, at noon. Seize the opportunity and apply now to participate in the upcoming class!
