The Governor's Council for People with Disabilities, a fellow member of the Indiana Developmental Disability Network, is an "independent state agency that facilitates change." The GCPD hosts community projects and supplies various publications and small grants for PwDs and their families to attend events. Most notably, they host an annual conference attended by many Indiana residents.
At this year's conference, several individuals with disabilities volunteered to provide testimonials about the everyday issues they've faced. Check out the Center on Aging and Community's YouTube page to access more than a dozen interviews with extraordinary people. The speakers cover surgeries, art, public transportation, advocacy, higher education, accessing services, and other diverse issues.
