TN Disability Days on the Hill
Updated: May 8
Each year, The Arc partners with local organizations on a bus trip to the Capitol in Nashville, Tennessee. This gives families and self-advocates a chance to speak to legislators about issues important to individuals with disabilities. Dozens of disability organizations from across the state come together to ensure that every legislator gets to hear from a constituent with a disability or a family member with concerns about how legislation affects the disability community.
What an incredible Disability Day on the Hill, @tndisability! The Arc Mid-South chartered a bus full of amazing self advocates and friends from Shelby County, to advocate for a better Tennessee for people with disabilities. Together, we walked the halls of the Capital advocating for change. We enjoyed meeting new friends and even seeing old friends like Scott, with The Arc Tennessee.
