Advocacy Days

April 19-21, 2022

Every day, we advocate for legislation that fulfill the Council’s legislative priorities by building relationships with legislators and their staff. Advocacy Days is a chance for you to hear about these efforts and learn how you can become an effective advocate on the important issues facing people in Wisconsin who are blind or visually impaired.

Thank you to everyone who attended 2022 Advocacy Days, which took place April 19-21. We hope you found the conversation informative and inspiring. And above all, we hope you came away from Advocacy Days with the confidence to take the next step in your advocacy journey.

Whether you attended or not, you may find these resources from Advocacy Days useful. Below are links to the PowerPoint presentation from the Day One overview session; the recorded Day One session on the Council’s YouTube channel; and the most up-to-date versions of our advocacy priorities briefs in both PDF and Word formats. 

Thanks again for your interest in advocating for public policies that promote equity for people living with vision loss. We look forward to getting together again in 2023 for another round of Advocacy Days!

“I am inspired each year to attend the Council’s Advocacy Day because I never wish to pass up the chance to begin to build a relationship with a legislator or member of staff. Additionally, it is important to bring the Council’s legislative priorities forward to key personnel who may not have considered state programs and services from a blind/visually impaired person’s perspective.”
