Stories of Impact
Remarkable stories of those impacted by our work and how it helped people change their lives.
"As a parent of a 34-year-old son with Autism and an Intellectual Disability and as an Advocate, I gained so much from Partners. Never allow yourself to say, "I could have, should have, would have". No matter where you are in your journey, PIP will help. The course provides dynamic presentations, invaluable resources, a community, and network of subject matter experts that will inform, empower and inspire you." – D.T., PIP Graduate
"My experience with Partners in Policymaking was beyond amazing and it helped me grow from the girl who could not advocate for herself to the beautiful and confident young woman who wants to fight for a brighter future for all kids with disabilities. I have soaked up all the information about advocacy and learning how to advocate for myself and for what I am fighting for." – L.D., PIP Graduate
When I started my journey in advocating for others with disabilities, I would say to myself, I wish there was a handbook. "Partners in Policymaking is more than just a handbook. It gives you the tools and strategies to collaborate with your policymakers to truly implement change." – S.L., PIP Graduate
"Not only do you learn about resources, but you learn how to make a change and make a difference in your community! It was awesome program and I enjoyed learning in every session!" – S.C., PIP Graduate
""The Partners in Policymaking Program highlighted for me that we stand on the shoulders of so many disability pioneers and advocates who have come before us. I am forever grateful for them and this incredible program." – J.P., PIP Graduate
