Take Your Legislator to Work Day is Back!
Back by popular demand and due to last year's great success, GCDD is pleased to announce the return of Take Your Legislator to Work Day to promote Employment First policy in Georgia and to celebrate National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) in October.
The goal of Take Your Legislator To Work Day is to show the far reaching benefits of hiring people with disabilities, support the idea that in an NDEAM theme, #InclusionWorks.
GCDD's Take Your Legislator to Work Day is an opportunity for employees with disabilities to invite their legislator(s) to visit them at work. All workers with disabilities working in competitive, integrated employment in their community are encouraged to apply.
We believe that visiting an employee at work is the best way to show legislators that people with disabilities want to work and are as capable as anyone at working real, competitive jobs for real wages in integrated settings.
Participation is simple! Just click on the link below to start the process and someone from GCDD will contact you within three business days to review your eligibility, process your application and discuss next steps.
IMPORTANT: Please be sure to wait to hear from GCDD first BEFORE you contact your legislator so that we can help ensure you have a successful visit and provide you with the tools you will need.
Registration ends October 12. Please register early. It only takes a minute.
GCDD looks forward to your participation! Please forward this message widely to interested friends.
Let's show Georgia legislators just what Georgians with disabilities can do in the workforce!
