Iowans with Disabilities in Action Announces State Sweep
Your Chance to Share What’s Working and What Needs to Change!
Iowans with Disabilities in Action is hitting the road and will visit all 99 counties in Iowa over the next two years. Too often, state-level organizations are perceived as inaccessible to those living outside the Des Moines area. We are determined to change that perception by visiting communities throughout Iowa and increasing awareness of how individuals and partners can rely on our organization to achieve their goals.
Iowans with Disabilities in Action is focused on moving people from taking notice to taking action. To be able to better encourage and support Iowans, we need to have a better understanding of what the needs are in communities throughout Iowa. Ask us to visit so you can share the great things about your community along with the challenges.
Each community visit will consist of a mix of meetings with individuals, stakeholder/partner organizations and the media. We expect to achieve the following:
- Develop stronger relationships with community partners and individuals throughout the state.
- Improve understanding of individual community needs and how Iowans with Disabilities in Action can be responsive to those needs.
- Increase understanding of what advocates or engaged community members are doing.
