Join Us for An Online Session to Share Your COVID-19 Challenges and the Impact on the Georgia Disability Community.

April 03 2020

Tuesdays Beginning April 7th | 3:00 – 4:30 PM The Georgia Developmental Disabilities Network and Partnering Organizations are launching a weekly community call to address issues and concerns related to COVID-19. The goal of these weekly forums is to receive and provide guidance and resources to the people we support across the state. Together we can tune into a clear signal of facts and resources that stands out from the overwhelming noise of social media, email and 24-hour news outlets.

We hope to accomplish several things:
-Provide a listening session to hear feedback on needs and wants regarding COVID-19 info and specific resources
-Crowdsource existing resources to share via a clearinghouse page
-Collect ideas and gauge where to focus our collective energy on new resources or advocacy efforts

Who can participate in this listening session?
-People with disabilities and their family members
-Service providers
-Policymakers
-State and Federal human and social services agency leaders
-Media professionals and journalists
