Advocacy & Outreach

Advocacy and outreach are essential to bring attention to the issues that matter to our community, drive public policy and ensure funding. At the core of these important efforts are dedicated family members who support each other, provide community outreach and promote advocacy efforts.

Volunteer Advocates

People with disabilities, family members and community supporters all make an impact on raising greater awareness, building a culture of inclusion and belonging, and on the public policies and state funding that influence our work and people’s lives.

Volunteer members of our Board of Directors, Board of Trustees and other volunteer committees work as ambassadors to spread the word about Ability Beyond, make connections to help advance the organization and advise on strategic business plans, governance, finances, human resources and mission.

We work to keep families and the community informed through monthly town hall virtual calls, email communications, a quarterly newsletter and social media. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Linked-In and Twitter to learn about emerging issues and timely advocacy efforts.

We are always looking for people to join our efforts. From serving on a volunteer or event committee to being an employment partner, contacting your local and state representatives about issues that impact the lives of people with disabilities, to joining us for advocacy days in Hartford and Albany, every voice and hand helps.
