Disability Services Day at the Capitol 2022!

Disability Services Day at the Capitol 2022!

Tuesday, March 8 is Disability Services Day at the Capitol

It’s time once again for the annual Disability Services Day at the Capitol! Like last year, the event is completely virtual. You can join the virtual “Rally in the Rotunda” on March 8 at 10 a.m.  After that, there are many (many!) House and Senate meetings you can virtually sit in on along with meetings with legislators throughout the day. You don’t have to say anything if you are shy— your presence is what matters.

Prior to the Rally, if you would like to hear legislative updates straight from ARRM, join this Zoom link at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, March 8. You can also use this link to join the virtual rally at 10 a.m. https://us02web.zoom.us/j/88514893295#success

From 10:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. you can meet virtually with your state legislators. ARRM has scheduled meetings for registrants who signed up in advance. A full list of meetings scheduled can be found on the ARRM event app. To download the app, visit the Google Play store of Apple store and search for ‘ARRM’.

It’s important for everyone to know the legislation ARRM is advocating for during the current legislative session. This graphic illustrates the Immediate Relief (SF 2968/ HF 3268) bill designed to address the critical staffing shortages of DSPs (Direct Support Professionals) organizations like Hammer Residences and Northeast Residence (NER) are facing.
