The Advocacy Committee seeks to advance public policies that affect the lives of people with disabilities as they strive to achieve access, inclusion, opportunity and independence by influencing legislation, government program regulations and funding. The committee’s immediate goals involve opening dialog with the political sector and introducing DFC to elected representatives and their staffs. In 2015 and 2016, the committee produced a Voters Guide during the election season that surveyed how Lehigh Valley candidates running for office viewed issues that are important to people with disabilities.
