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.
