Voices for Change

6 years ago on Sunday, April 1, 2018

As a person with a disability, have you ever felt that nobody is listening to you? Have you experienced actions or inactions by others that affected your quality of life? How can your voice be heard, and still make a difference?

There are ways you can be heard and become part of the voices for change. For example, there are boards and councils at the federal, state, and local level advising governing bodies. These groups of stake holders hold regular meetings to discuss various subjects, including disability.

Members of the Washington State Rehabilitation Council is one such group that promote ongoing improvement within the vocational rehabilitation service system.

The mission of the Council is to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the Washington State Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR) leadership as they make decisions and insure that the DVR customer's perspective is never forgotten. The WSRC is mandated by the Federal Rehabilitation Act, and all members must be appointed by the Governor.

In 2015, I was appointed by Governor Inslee to the WSRC, and I would like to share an opportunity with you to be a part of the voices for change. On April 19, the WSRC will be holding a public forum at our quarterly meeting, to be held at the Holiday Inn in Yakima from 3:30-5:00 pm. Come let your voice be heard, and learn more about the Washington State Rehabilitation Council.
