Did you know? Missouri has no agreed upon rights statement to guide our citizens, policymakers, and lawmakers as they consider decisions that directly impact the lives of people with disabilities. Sadly, many people do not understand how often rights guaranteed to others are denied to people with disabilities.
A group of representatives from disability-related organizations across Missouri believed this needed to change, so they came together to develop a statement. The work group met four times over the span of more than a year to craft precise language we hope will become the guiding document for our state.
As a member of the Missouri Association of County Developmental Disability Services, we are proud to support this statement of rights!
