New Mexico LEND Director and three LEND Fellows attended the annual Disability Policy Seminar. The event brought together advocates for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) with public policy experts and the staff of six hosting organizations who serve people with I/DD to go in-depth on pressing policy issues and other topics of importance to the I/DD movement during two full-day sessions in Washington, D.C. The Seminar culminated with a third day spent on Capitol Hill where they met with our elected officials. Each year approximately 700 people take advantage of this chance to learn, discuss, network and advocate for change. Our network association, the Association of University Centers on Disabilities (AUCD) and national partner organizations including: The Arc, United Cerebral Palsy (UCP), American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (AAIDD), National Association of Councils on Developmental Disabilities (NACDD), and Self-Advocates Becoming Empowered (SABE), hosted the event.
