This presentation was provided by Andrew Gerbitz and Joshua Ryf at the 2014 Wisconsin Employment First Conference on April 3, 2014.
Session description from the conference program: Learn about BPDD’s Take Your Legislator to Work Campaign and how you can get involved in 2014! If you have a job in the community, if you employ a person with a disability, or if you just know someone who is working in the community, this session is for you! During the Take Your Legislator to Work Campaign, legislators visit people with disabilities who have community-integrated jobs. During the visit, the legislator gets to experience first-hand how everyone wins when people with disabilities work in the community. 2014 will be the fourth year of the campaign and it is already spreading like wildfire throughout the state. After learning about this campaign, other states have even starting conducting campaigns of their own. Come to this session and learn how you can be part of this campaign that is working to raise awareness about Employment First in Wisconsin!
