Launch of Raise Your Voice! Advocate Connection program

We had a full room for our 2020 RYV! Launch on Wednesday! Our staff outlined our current policy priorities, and we heard from participants about their concerns. Despite some tech hiccups, our advocacy team learned a lot about running these sessions, plus what’s on the minds of Texans with disabilities for the 2021 legislature. The recording of the launch is now posted, along with poll results and breakout conversation highlights.

Registration for our next five sessions is open!

The following RYV! sessions will take place Wednesdays at 2 pm CST and will focus on one policy area. While we are planning them to be similar to the RYV! Launch, we will adapt and incorporate your feedback as we go.

We hope you can join us!


Since 2016, CTD’s RYV! events are designed to provide a functional understanding of our state’s legislative process while connecting emerging and seasoned advocates. These sessions also give CTD insight into the needs and concerns of Texans with disabilities outside our usual circles.
