Mark your calendars for two important events:

Pre‐legislative‐session forum ‐ The Disability Coalition's annual pre‐session forum will take place on Saturday, January 7, 2017, at the Jewish Community Center, 5520 Wyoming Blvd., NE in Albuquerque.  The forum is a great opportunity to learn about issues that will be coming up in the 2017 session of the New Mexico Legislature and to network with other members of the disability community.

Disability Rights Awareness Day ‐ Trainings and workshops will be held on Thursday, February 23, at the Drury Hotel in downtown Santa Fe.  On Friday, February 24, we’ll be at the State Capitol, where activities will include a gathering in the Rotunda, visits with legislators, and opportunities to observe the legislative process in action.   Plan to join members of the disability community from around New Mexico to learn about issues in the Legislature, make new contacts, and participate in policymaking that affects persons with disabilities.

Please save the dates for these events, and keep an eye out for more information and registration information that we'll be sending out in the coming weeks.   We look forward to seeing many of you at the forum and the Disability Rights Awareness Day events!
