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.

As we all know, the pandemic has unfortunately reached new heights and has become widespread in every corner of the country. We have put together a panel of Deaf public health experts and epidemiologists who will be answering important questions about the COVID-19 pandemic, the upcoming vaccine, and how we can stay safe and healthy.

Free event! Sign with Santa (ahem Robert) will be the best gift for your child - or maybe some adults need a little chat with Santa too. We will have an interpreter so all are welcome to sign, speak, visit and have fun with Santa. You can register to just watch - or once you are in the webinar simply raise your hand to be selected to come onscreen to sign with Santa.
