Survival Coalition Shares Essential Information on Disability Issues for Candidates for Public Office

The new resource – Issues that Impact People with Disabilities in Wisconsin: Background Papers– draws on the expertise of people with disabilities and advocates statewide who describe the funding sources, challenges and impacts of various programs and services intended to improve the lives of Wisconsinites with disabilities.

“Candidates and all policymakers will find this new resource to be incredibly helpful in understanding not only how programs do or don’t currently work for people with disabilities, but what needs to be done to make them better,” says Survival Co-Chair, Lisa Pugh. “The papers should be used to help people in public office have informed relationships with their constituents with disabilities.” Read Press Release
