DISABILITY DAY ON THE HILL 2021

Thursday, March 11, 2021 - 12:00am
Online

Disability Day on the Hill is our chance to gather as a community and take part in the legislative process. For 30 years, the Tennessee Disability Coalition has connected Tennesseans with disabilities with their legislators to help state lawmakers understand the needs of the disability community. While the pandemic has meant that we are NOT meeting in-person, it has also provided a tremendous opportunity for Tennesseans from all over the state to meet with their representatives, face-to-virtual-face. The health, wellbeing, services and economics in the disability community have been disproportionately impacted by the pandemic and it's never been more important to participate. So, get ready to GO FURTHER!
