DISABILITY AWARENESS DAY – March 12, 2020
Justice and Access for All!
Disability Awareness Day to Focus
on Justice and Access for All
The Vermont Coalition for Disability Rights is looking forward to celebrating Disability Awareness Day this year and working toward Justice and Access for All. By working together, we can strengthen our state’s ability to renew and preserve the resources and services that make equity, access and participation possible for persons with disabilities and their families…and for all Vermonters. It is time to invest in justice and equal opportunity.
Disability Awareness Day will be held from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. March 12, 2020, at the Vermont State House. Please join us for a variety of activities, including workshops and a keynote by Ed Paquin, former legislator and executive director of Disability Rights Vermont.
VCDR is a cross-disability advocacy group composed of more than 22 member organizations. It seeks to increase awareness of disability issues and effect systemic change through legislative and administrative processes.
