Educate to Advocate Virtual Public Policy Workshop

Educate to Advocate Virtual Public Policy Workshop from Vanderbilt Kennedy Center On Vimeo.

This Kennedy Center lecture was presented on October 30, 2023.

Whatever our perspective – trainees and students, researchers, health care professionals, service providers, educators, individuals with disabilities or family members, or simply concerned citizens – we see ways that the disability service system can be improved. One dimension of changing service systems is educating legislators and other public policy makers.

Co-hosted by the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center's Megan Hart and Courtney Taylor, this year's Educate to Advocate will feature policy expertise of representatives from The Arc Tennessee and the Tennessee Disability Coalition. Details will be added as they are solidified.

On the agenda:

  • How Policy Works: Robyn Lampley, The Arc Tennessee
  • Hot Topics in Disability Policy: Jeff Strand, Tennessee Disability Coalition
  • The Impact of Advocacy: Panel discussion with disability advocates Michelle Gross, Tatum Gross, and Pisanach (Peach) Chinratanalab
