2019 DD Advocacy Days - Make Your Voice Heard

Join the Oregon DD Coalition GO! Project Advocacy Team in advocacy during the 2019 Legislative Session. They are available to give you information, training, and support on Advocacy Days in Salem.

The Oregon Legislature meets in Salem each year for the purpose of lawmaking. The Oregon DD Coalition and Oregon Council on Developmental Disabilities organize a DD Advocacy Day for each month during the legislative session to provide an opportunity for people with disabilities, family members, advocates and others to travel to Salem and talk with legislators face-to-face about critical issues that affect their lives. When you attend a DD Advocacy Day, you are encouraged to:

  • Schedule visits with your legislators.

  • Wear something yellow to show unity on advocacy.

  • Stop by before and after your visits for important advocacy updates!

Before you go, find your State Senator and State Representative at www.oregonlegislature.gov
