Disability Day on the Hill 

2023

Disability Day on the Hill is our chance to gather as a community and take part in the legislative process. This year, we are excited to announce the Tennessee disability community will be heading down to the capitol in person, and we’ll also have plenty of opportunities to participate, advocate, and celebrate virtually

The theme for DDH 2023 is "My Tennessee Life." With a slight nod to our Tennessee Queen, Dolly Parton's "My Tennessee Mountain Home"; we are highlighting how living with a disability in Tennessee is very different than other states. As we head into DDH 2023, we are asking YOU to share your unique Tennessee disability experiences to help others understand why we advocate...to make Tennessee a better place for ALL to live.
