A number of different disability groups, including PAS-Port for Change, the Arc of Washington and Disability Rights Washington are having a rally next Wednesday, March 6, to promote independent living. If you are interested in talking with your legislators about broader disability issues than we discussed at the Day of Activism, this is your chance.
The rally begins at 11am on the Capitol steps facing the Temple of Justice/the Supreme Court building. Individuals are encouraged to make appointments with their legislators for the afternoon to discuss issues like personal care services. Meet in the Columbia Room at 10am to start off your day.
If you go, don't forget to wear your orange scarf to identify yourself as an MS Activist.
