Disability Day On the Hill – February 8, 2017

Once again the Project SEARCH class attended Disability Day on the Hill. We were given the chance to distribute folders of information from the ARC of TN to many of the State Senators and Represenatives.  Carrie Guiden from the ARC also came and spoke to our class beforehand about tips on how to be a Self-Advocate and how the State Legislative Process works.
