Listening tours are a great way for you to get your issues known.
Public Forums
on Issues for Pennsylvanians with Disabilities

We want to hear from you!

The Disability Rights Network of Pennsylvania, the Pennsylvania Developmental Disabilities Council, and the Institute on Disabilities at Temple University need your input about the issues that matter most to Pennsylvanians with disabilities and their families.

How can we improve supports, services, your community, advocacy, training, and rights for people with disabilities and their families?

Specifically, we would like to hear your ideas about...

• the disability and social issues we should pursue to better support people with disabilities and their families, and provide information and education for all Pennsylvanians.
• how we can ensure that civil and human rights of people with disabilities are protected.
• the training opportunities we should make available; for people with disabilities and family members, and for people who provide supports and the general community.
• the research needed in Pennsylvania to guide policy; improve services, supports, systems and communities; and ensure civil and human rights.

Although some organizations do not provide direct services, we work statewide to improve disability service and social systems, conduct needed research, assist with collaboration and networking, disseminate information, provide training and technical assistance, advocate for positive social changes, and work to ensure civil rights to empower, increase knowledge and improve the lives of people with disabilities in Pennsylvania.

Please attend one of these PUBLIC FORUMS (or send your written comments)

The first Listening Tour is scheduled for September 4 in Williamsport and State College.
