Disability Day on the Hill 2021
At the beginning of every year our community comes together to advocate for the rights of Tennesseans with disabilities at Disability Day on the Hill. In the midst of a pandemic, it’s more important than ever that the voices of Tennesseans with disabilities be heard. However, restrictions due to COVID-19 limited in-person visits to the Capitol and plans changed for our community’s biggest annual advocacy event.
This year, Disability Day on the Hill (DDH) was virtual! There were several events hosted by Tennessee disability rights organizations all sharing advocacy tools and opportunities.
