The Arc’s Parent Coalition to Host Legislative Coffee
Thursday, December 14th, 9:30am-12:30pm
The Arc’s Dan Godwin Community Center
2602 McLeod Road, Bellingham
It’s that time of year again! Our state is gearing up for a legislative session starting in January, and our federal legislators continue to work on issues that impact individuals with developmental disabilities. An important goal of the Parent Coalition is to provide the connections and resources for families to make their voices heard. The Annual Legislative Coffee provides a relaxed environment for people to meet their legislators face-to-face and communicate their experiences in a meaningful way. Prior to the coffee, there is an informational forum and guided discussion. Whether you are knowledgeable about the legislative process or completely new, this information is important to make the most of the opportunity with our legislators. The Legislative Coffee is a rewarding experience for families, self-advocates, community members, and legislators. Please join us, and let your voice be heard!
Due to limited space, please register by contacting Monica Burke: (360) 715-0170, ext. 303, email@example.com.
Join us Wednesday May 24, 2017 from 5-7 pm at the Bloedel Donovan Park Multi-purpose Building.
We will be sharing progress updates and working together to create effective programs and inclusive activities. Your participation is crucial as we expand and improve our services. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend. Pizza and light refreshments will be provided. To make this event as accessible as possible for families, childcare will also be provided.
Please RSVP by May 10th by calling 715-0170 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
