Joining more than 900 advocates from around the state, a team of family members, self-advocates, board members, and staff from The Arc Baltimore descended on Annapolis to rally together and meet our legislators. Fifty-seven of us worked in teams to cover meetings with 43 members of the legislature or their staff from the Baltimore City and County districts. We had our talking points on the budget bill, and adult changing facilities, DD Program Changes, and other agenda items. While response to our agenda was very positive overall, the legislative session doesn’t conclude until early April. It’s likely we will need calls and emails in the coming weeks. Please stay tuned.
