Jewish Disability Advocacy Day 2018

Jewish Disability Advocacy Day (a cornerstone of The Jewish Disability Network, led by The Jewish Federations of North America and the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism), will take place on February 6, 2018 on Capitol Hill. JDAD is an opportunity for select professionals and lay leaders from Jewish organizations and communities across the nation to come to Capitol Hill to raise awareness of their work and passion relating to individuals with disabilities and their families, to learn about relevant public policy, and to advocate on these issues with their elected officials.

Jewish Disability Advocacy Day will include:

• An educational symposium from leading analysts on key issues relating to disability and inclusion;
• A briefing on relevant advocacy issues to raise with Congress and training on how to be an effective advocate;
• Lunch with key Members of Congress who will discuss disability issues; and
• Advocacy visits with key policymakers

Registration cost is $100. If you are interested in attending the event with the JAA, please contact Jaime Russo at: jrusso@jewishatlanta.org
