DPS has gone mobile!

We are proud to introduce the new mobile application, which serves as an organizational tool during the Disability Policy Seminar and your Capitol Hill visits. It includes a scheduling feature, a list of presenters, fact sheets, maps, and much more. It’s also great for networking throughout the event (and even after its conclusion!) since you can create a profile and connect with other attendees. Download the Guidebook application to your smartphone, or access it online here.

Who Should Attend?

  • Self-advocates;
  • Parents and family members of individuals with disabilities;
  • Board members, staff, trainees, and volunteers for disability organizations;
  • State and local public policy committee members;
  • Public policy staff; or
  • Constituents

During this crucial election season we need you in Washington, D.C. to help us build bipartisan support on Capitol Hill for high-priority disability issues. When you attend the Disability Policy Seminar, we'll arm you with all of the information you need to help educate our Members of Congress and their staff on the priorities of the I/DD community. Then, you can return to your hometowns with the ability to spread the word, educate new advocates and reach out to the candidates to help put the needs of people with I/DD front and center on the campaign trail this year.
