About this Event

You are invited to attend the disAbility Resource Center’s Legislative Forum to discuss issues affecting the disability community.

The format for the evening will be very simple.  We will begin with introductions and then we would like you, people with disabilities and your families, to talk about talk about concerns and issues that affect your life or your family member’s life.  We plan to give each person approximately three minutes to speak and then we will have the candidates respond to the issues presented.

We foresee this forum as an informal awareness and educational event for all involved.  We would like the candidates in our districts to learn more about the issues facing the disability community and then we can hear about the candidates' interest in these issues.  Some of the topics to be addressed include affordable, accessible housing; the need for more transportation options; employment opportunities; waiting lists for needed services; living wages for care givers; appropriate education for students with disabilities; and expanding independent living services provided by Centers for Independent Living. 

We have invited all those running for office in Planning District 16 which includes legislative districts that cover the city of Fredericksburg and the counties of Stafford, Spotsylvania, Caroline, and King George.  We have also invited the Mayor and City Manager of Fredericksburg in addition to the Chairmen of the Boards of Supervisors for each of the counties.We hope the evening will provide enlightenment for all, and we look forward to seeing you there.  Please confirm your participation as soon as possible by calling the dRC office at the number above.  We look forward to hearing from you and seeing you on September 4, 2019.
