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.
Join our Statewide Facebook Group
As a part of DDH 2023, we are launching a new statewide Facebook group for individuals, family members, and allies of people with disabilities in Tennessee. This group is a safe place for disability advocates to have conversations, share resources, and share up-to-date with relevant disability policy.
