NEW YEAR, NEW COMMISSION, NEW OPPORTUNITIES
Dawn Adams, Executive Director
Each New Year brings with it the opportunity to make a resolution to do something to make our world a little bit better. Serving as the Executive Director of Indiana Disability Rights, my vision for 2018 is to seek out new opportunities to positively influence policy that will allow individuals with disabilities to live independently and free of discrimination.
In support of this vision, I am honored to announce that I have been appointed by Governor Holcomb to serve on the Commission on Rehabilitation Services, more commonly known as the VR (Vocational Rehabilitation) Commission. This Commission serves in an advisory capacity to Indiana’s VR Services agency and seeks to provide support to the agency by proposing recommendations and increasing awareness of disability issues in the area of employment, education, and independent living.
But this isn’t just my opportunity, it can be your opportunity as well. Meetings are open to the public and an open forum for public comment is available at every meeting. This means that you can advocate with me to improve VR services for the citizens of Indiana.
Join me January 19, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. at Bosma Enterprises, Training Room, 6720 Corporate Drive, Indianapolis, Indiana to get involved and learn more about this opportunity. I hope to see you there!
