Free webinar: Learn how to be an effective advocate

MEET WITH YOUR MEMBERS OF CONGRESS NOW TO SAVE DISABILITY PROGRAMS!

Critical Disability Programs at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are at risk of being cut!

Join us for an advocacy training webinar to learn how you can help!

Tuesday August 16, 2011 | 3:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. EDT

Register Now!

The Centers for Disease Control funds critical programs through the National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities (NCBDDD) that directly impact the day to day lives of those living with disabilities. This year, the President's budget proposes to consolidate all NCBDDD disability division programs over a three year period.

Have you ever visited the Paralysis Resource Center, or received a Paralysis Resource Guide, or a quality of life grant? Do you know someone who has benefited from the NeuroRecovery Network? Have you visited our website? All of these and other disability resources are at risk of being cut due to the proposed NCBDDD consolidation. We need your voices now more than ever.

While Congress is home for the August recess we need you to show them the faces of those who are directly impacted by this consolidation. This webinar will provide you with all the background, training and resources you will need to meet with your Congressperson and let them know how consolidating NCBDDD funding in this way impacts you and what they can do to help.

In this one hour interactive session, leaders in the disability community will provide you with:

  • Background on the NCBDDD funding consolidation and walk you through the politics.
  • In-depth training on what's been done so far, why this is so critical, and what we need to do next.
  • Tools to take ACTION!
  • Opportunity to ask questions and hear from others in the community.
