A primary goal of DC Advocacy Partners is to make sure you have the opportunity to learn about disability policy, effective methods of being part of the decision making process and influencing policy, and meeting others who share your interests, concerns and dedication to improving the lives of people with disabilities living in DC. Homework is part of the learning process and will help you become a more effective advocate.
