The goals of justice, equality, and dignity remain unfulfilled for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The mission of the Commission on Effective Inclusion of Individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities is to bring to life accurate, effective and comprehensive attitudes, policies and supports that will guide first responders in their work with and care for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We hope to build on the goals of the Americans with Disabilities Act and its accomplishments by creating a more compassionate, knowledgeable and understanding society that respects the life-saving work of our public servants along-side the valuable contributions of our citizens with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We seek to reduce stigma, increase safety, and inspire relationships of acceptance and support for all Marylanders.
The Commission would like to hear from people with disabilities, family members, disability organizations and other interested individuals. Please see the attached flyer for details. The dates are as follows:
