Why does this event take place?   ​

Over 25 years ago pierce county began hosting the legislative forum to educate, inform, collaborate, and create change.  For too long individuals who experience intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD), their families, friends, and allies have not been heard.  The point of the forum is to convene into action “nothing about us without us.”  A slogan that indicates the active involvement of persons with I/DD in the planning of strategies and policies that affect their lives.
