Speak Up About Jobs for People with Disabilities
Do you have something to say about jobs for people with disabilities in Texas? If your answer is “yes,” then your Texas leaders want to hear from you.
This summer, Texas leaders started talking about an important idea. The idea was that all people with disabilities in Texas should be able to find and keep a job if they want one. They called this idea “Employment-First” because having a job, or employment, should be every person’s first option.
Now it’s time to hear from you. People with disabilities and their family members know what people with disabilities need to find and keep jobs. Please think about signing up to be part of a group that will make suggestions about how to make getting a job and keeping a job easier for people with disabilities.
You do not need to be an expert to join this group. You do need to want to talk about jobs for people with disabilities and changes that will make things better. You also need to be able to come to Austin for meetings.
To sign up to be a part of this group, fill out the application. Not everyone who signs up will be chosen for the group. To get help signing up to join the group or to get more information, contact (no longer available).
