Complete BPDD’s Advocacy Survey

The Wisconsin Board for People with Developmental Disabilities (BPDD) would like to learn about your advocacy efforts on important issues that affect Wisconsin residents with developmental disabilities (DD). BPDD has developed a survey to determine:

  • How knowledgeable you are about important issues that affect people with DD.
  • How involved you get in trying to impact issues that affect people with DD.
  • How you advocate regarding issues that affect people with DD (e.g., call a legislator, host/attend an event, volunteer, forward information to others, encourage others to take action).
  • What issues you have advocated for or against in the last year (e.g., Lifting the Caps, Employment First, The “R” Word campaign, seclusion and restraint).

The survey is anonymous and can be completed online. Please complete the survey by October 29th, 2012.

The survey will help BPDD get a better understanding of the different ways Wisconsin residents are getting involved in advocacy, the issues people have been most involved with, and how BPDD can better support these efforts in the future.

Ever since H.U.D. has allowed people with
disabilities to live in subsidized housing, they
have reserved 80% of this housing for the
elderly. They have "locked" in this 80%.

In the future there will be enough elderly
to fill 100% of subsidized housing.

My question is; Do people with disabilities
have a "lock" on the remaining 20% and if
not, we should start working on this now.
