Countdown to the Event

Your health and safety are important to us. The Disability Policy Seminar partners are actively monitoring the guidelines for health and safety measures from the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the District of Columbia. We will comply with all mandated federal and District of Columbia public health guidelines, as well as the Renaissance Washington DC hotel’s safety precautions, including requirements related to masking and social distancing during the event. These requirements are subject to change at any time, and we will provide more updates as they become available.

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.
