Get a $250 stipend to help make the Take Your Legislator to Work Campaign a success!

The Wisconsin Board for People with Developmental Disabilities (BPDD) will conduct the Take Your Legislator to Work Campaign in October to raise awareness about the importance of community-integrated employment for people with disabilities. During the campaign, legislators visit individuals with disabilities at local businesses in their district who work in community-integrated jobs at a competitive wage.

BPDD is looking for Regional Coordinators (RC) now to recruit individuals with disabilities working in community-integrated settings for competitive wages to participate in the campaign. RCs may also recruit facilitators, help schedule visits, etc. The time frame in which RC’s will work is between Sept. 1 and Oct. 31.

For the campaign, the state is divided into regions based on legislative districts. Most regions include two or three Senate districts and six or nine Assembly districts, respectively.

RCs will participate in conference calls with BPDD staff to answer any questions that may arise and to ensure an effective and successful campaign in every region. RCs will be paid a stipend of $250 at the conclusion of the campaign.

If you are interested in being a Regional Coordinator, complete and submit a Regional Coordinator Application. Qualified applicants will be selected and assigned to regions immediately, so apply as soon as possible. More information is available on the BPDD website.

Participants and facilitators are also being recruited for the campaign.

If you have questions about coordinating a region, please contact Joshua Ryf at or (608) 261-7829.
