Join us in April for the Council’s Advocacy Days to work together toward advancing equity for people who are blind and visually impaired through legislation. This event was previously called Legislative Day and will be offered this year as a virtual event over multiple days.

This year’s event will be held via Zoom on Tuesday, April 6, Wednesday, April 7 and Thursday, April 8.  Choose one introductory session on Tuesday, April 6 from 7:30 to 9 a.m. or 4:30 to 6 p.m. We’ll provide an overview of the Council’s legislative priorities, the proposed state budget and relevant legislative proposals. We’ll cover the budget process, share tips on how to have a conversation with your legislator, and how you can help advance the Council’s advocacy priorities.

After attending the introductory session, you are invited to one or both breakout sessions on Wednesday, April 7 and Thursday, April 8, during the lunch hour. Wednesday’s session will focus on broadband internet accessibility and accessing state websites, and Thursday’s breakout session focuses on transportation. We’ll cover specific budget asks related to each topic and how you can help advocate on behalf of the Council.

To attend, register at or contact Kathleen Callen at (608) 237-8120 or
