Countdown to the Event
Your health and safety are important to us. While the CDC and the District of Columbia have relaxed masking and vaccine requirements, the Disability Policy Seminar partners have decided to continue to require proof of vaccination and masking requirements in order to ensure the safest environment for our in-person attendees. We recognize that people attending or their family members may be at higher risk of serious complications from COVID-19 and chose to continue the public health measures that reduce the risk of exposure and serious illness. Therefore, in-person attendees will be required to be fully vaccinated (as defined by the CDC) and wear masks. A virtual option is available to those who are not vaccinated or are unable to travel to Washington, DC.

Why You Should Attend
This year, we’re taking the Disability Policy Seminar to a new level by showcasing the many avenues that advocates could take to engage with their members of Congress! From online meetings to in-person actions, our Day of Action will prepare you with an assortment of tools to choose from when you advocate for issues that matter to you at the local, state, or federal level. These skills will be invaluable as you walk away from the seminar and organize your community to take action toward an equitable future for people with disabilities.
Please note: scholarships are not currently available for this event. We also do not accept requests to speak at this event. The sponsoring partner organizations identify Congressional staff, policy experts, advocates, and others to speak.
