Idaho Gov. Brad Little on Tuesday read a Disability Awareness Day proclamation. The day was originally named for disability advocate Fred Riggers after his passing in 2016.
The disability community is advocating for rate increases for in-home care and fighting against Medicaid cuts. To help, the Consortium for Idahoans with Disabilities is offering virtual education on how to advocate with your state legislature, tips on telling your story, and raising awareness of the rights of people with disabilities.
