The landscape is changing for individuals with disabilities in Wisconsin. The opportunities for assistance for our friends and loved ones with disabilities may be shrinking. But how can you as an individual help to stand up for people with disabilities and make your voice heard?

Join Wisconsin Upside Down as they present a webinar featuring Lisa Pugh, the Public Policy Coordinator for Wisconsin's Disability Policy Partnership. Lisa will discuss:

  • Current issues of concern for people with disabilities in Wisconsin
  • Roles you can play in changing public policy
  • Resources for the next steps for family members who want to make a difference

You'll come away armed with easy-to-follow steps to get your voice heard and stand up for your loved ones. You won't want to miss this important program brought to you by Wisconsin Upside Down.
