The caucus provides an opportunity for learning about grassroots organizing, advocacy and citizenship skills for individuals with disabilities. This year’s caucus will be structured as a “mock legislature” with participants assigned to various roles in the legislative process. After developing legislation, participants will put their bills through the legislative process.
Registration deadline is June 18, 2004. Stipends are available if application and fee ($5.00) is made by the registration deadline.
