Children’s Disabilities Information Coalition — Civic Engagement for People with Disabilities

Project Goal
Provide training and opportunities for people with developmental disabilities (DD) in El Paso to engage in conversations addressing issues important to their independence, self-determination, and inclusion in community life  

Project Summary
The Children’s Disabilities Information Coalition coordinates training programs and community-action events for El Pasoans with DD to gain experience and skills in civic participation and civic engagement. The project will also develop a training toolkit and a report on key findings and recommendations to improve engagement policies and practices of state and local governments.

TCDD funds projects that support civic engagement among people with DD so self-advocates and their families can participate in policymaking and take part in the design of community services and individualized supports while having access to those services and supports. Engagement by people with DD benefits society by creating responsive policies and programs that integrate the experiences and expertise of people who are directly impacted.
