AUCD for All 2018 Gala: Celebrating Leadership in State Policy
Join the Association of University Centers on Disabilities (AUCD) on March 20, 2018, to celebrate state-level leadership in disability policy. States are often the catalysts for innovation, and AUCD members are engaging with policy makers and coalition partners in every state and territory by presenting research, conducting training, and developing and advocating for policies that will improve the lives of children and adults with disabilities. The AUCD for All celebration brings together leaders from all sectors who are tireless advocates for disability rights, equity, and inclusion. These leaders advocate with their legislature to open scholarships to students with intellectual disabilities, engage with their Medicaid agency to guarantee home and community based supports, partner with local school boards or school districts to eliminate policies for restraint and seclusion, and train and empower self-advocates and early career professionals to have a positive impact on the lives of people with disabilities and their communities. On this night we honor those who are transforming policy and leading the way toward inclusion, opportunity, and social justice for all.
