What Is Partners In Policymaking?
Partners in Policymaking is designed for adults with disabilities, parents of children with disabilities who are too young to advocate for themselves, and advocates for persons with disabilities.
“There’s just so much you can learn in a short time; it’s like a crash course in parenting and advocacy all in one, and it really did change my life.” — Traci, Partners graduate
“Trust yourself as a parent; you owe that to yourself. Advocate for your child; you owe that to them." — Pattye, Partners graduate
“Partners believed in me as an advocate for my children. They inspire when I get tired because I see I am not fighting alone.” — Adam, Partners graduate
“The diagnosis doesn’t matter. The age of your child doesn’t matter. How much education you have doesn’t matter. What matters is that you are ready and willing to change the world.” — Erin, Partners graduate
