31stth Annual Disability Advocacy Day Presented by the SC Partnership of Disability Organizations
Columbia, SC (February 26, 2020) The South Carolina Partnership of Disability Organizations (SCPDO) has reached a monumental milestone – celebrating the 31st Annual Disability Advocacy Day this March 4 at the SC State House.
Collectively, the 15 member organizations of SCPDO represent more than 500,000 people with lifelong disabilities and their families in South Carolina. Disability Advocacy Day is an opportunity for these individuals and their supporters to come together with one voice to legislators making budget decisions that directly affect their lifestyles and futures.
This year’s theme celebrates the contributions made by people of all abilities. Disability is only limiting by the restrictions society places on the individual. When a person with a disability has equal access and opportunity, the individual as well as the entire community benefits.
Out with the old, in with the new. The SCPDO is excited to unveil a new look for this special occasion. Chosen from a slate of five art entries, Christine Lutfy’s design was chosen as the new logo to represent the partnership going forward.
To participate in SC Disability Advocacy Day as an organization, please visit www.scpdo.org for more information about reserving a space. As an individual, there is no pre-registration, simply sign in your attendance at the event. The agenda includes presentations made by self-advocates and caregivers, a “march” around the state house grounds, visits to legislator offices and more!
