The Maryland Center for Developmental Disabilities and People On the Go Maryland invite you to a special lecture on the importance of your vote this November. Panelists will share information on voting at the state and federal levels, and will discuss issues affecting those with intellectual and developmental disabilities, as well as the Institute’s perspective on relevant topics.

A panel of topic experts, moderated by Maureen van Stone, includes

Ben Jackson - staff attorney at Disability Rights Maryland, the state’s designated Protection & Advocacy agency

Emily Arneson - director of government relations at Kennedy Krieger Institute.

Mat Rice - public policy specialist at People On the Go Maryland, a statewide self-advocacy group for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities

Rylin Rodgers - director of public policy at the Association of University Centers on Disabilities

VotER is a nonprofit organization whose goal is to provide patients the opportunity to register to vote, because much of our healthcare system and healthcare experiences are determined by the policies our elected officials implement. Visit https://vot-er.org/ for more information on the program.
