Disability Rights rally set May 1

Published 5:07 am Friday, March 8, 2013

Citizens advocating for support services for people with developmental disabilities so that they can live and thrive in their own homes and communities will gather for a Disability Rights rally on Wednesday, May 1 from 1-3 p.m. on the steps of the Louisiana State Capitol in Baton Rouge.

The rally is a great way to connect with other advocates and show support for home and community-based services. Advocates may come early and visit with legislators and check out informational booths in the Capitol Rotunda.

Based on the need for transportation, Northshore Families Helping Families will provide a bus from Covington and from Hammond. Please register for the rally and call 875-0511 if you need bus transportation. The deadline to reserve a spot on the bus is March 27.
