If you or someone you know works for or attends a post-secondary education program for students with intellectual disability, you are qualified to apply to be a Think College Policy Advocate, and be supported to participate in the 2021 Disability Policy Seminar.
The Disability Policy Seminar, to be held fully on-line in 2021, offers the opportunity for passionate advocates, self-advocates, experts, and professionals in the field to come together and learn about key issues that affect them most. After two days of training and learning, attendees will participate in a day of meetings with their Members of Congress on Capital Hill.
Up to 10 teams, comprised of one student and one staff member, will be selected. Teams must be interested in learning more about public policy and be able to commit to the full series of activities over a year.
Applications are due by February 19, 2021; teams will be contacted on or about March 1, 2021. If you have any questions, please contact Denise Rozell at AUCD: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, feel free to reach out to Jessie Green with any additional questions: Jessie.Green@osumc.edu
