As an ACCSES Champion, you are a Critical Part of our Strategy for Success!

ChampionsFor decades, ACCSES has been the leading supportive voice in the Nation’s capital on the issues most important to disability service providers. We proudly stand with ACCSES Members in support of inclusion, choice, and maintaining a full array of options for all individuals with disabilities. ACCSES Members have been an integral part of the strides that have been made in the past decades for people with disabilities. We are up against fierce competition from advocates who would prefer to see policies benefiting many individuals to be discarded in favor of those advocates’ ideas of what it means to be included, to be in the “community,” to be employed, or to live in an environment that allows individuals to thrive and live robust lives. We know that if those advocates are successful in their long game, many individuals will be left behind. We cannot allow that to happen. Your Champions dollars will go far in expanding the work ACCSES does. This January, we welcomed a new Administration and a new Congress to Washington along with new agency heads, and new potential allies. At the same time, like ACCSES members and disability service providers everywhere, we are fighting not just for expanded rights but for increased supports during this pandemic! 2021 was a tumultuous year and one in which we can all take a lot of pride for the strides we made. There is more work to be done and we are proud to stand with you, and for you, in DC.
 
ACCSES is targeting Champions contributions to support these primary areas:

1. Tell the story of disability service providers and their historic and continuing role in providing services to people with disabilities. Our plans to produce a full-blown documentary in 2020 were backburnered during the pandemic, but the stories still must be told even as we look to a post-pandemic documentary or marketing campaign. DSPs are the foundation of the disability service system and enlightening Washington as to all you do is vitally important. #TogetherWeSoar
2. Introduce mission-critical legislation to protect and expand the rights of every person with a disability to choose the job, home, and setting that best meets that person’s goals, no matter what their age or how complex their needs. #WeAreTheCommunity
3. Continue to use our combined resources in 2021 to influence, amend, and eliminate guidance and regulations that serve to limit options and opportunities, for people with disabilities. #MyJobMyChoice
4. Expand our platform to include focused work in aging and dementia and apprenticeships. #PrepareForTomorrow
 
Because of your past Champions contributions, in 2019 and 2020 ACCSES was able to:
Prepare legislation a Resolution for introduction in 2020 and 2021.
Increase and educate on funding opportunities for providers during COVID.
Fight for changes to the 2017 WOIA guidance that was negatively affecting job referrals.
Hold ACCSES’s Second Annual Congressional Briefing on the importance of choice in employment and residential decisions and why we fight to keep a full array of options available.
Continue to build strong relationships with Congressional members who recognize and appreciate the consequences of recent laws, regulations, and guidance on individuals with disabilities and each person’s right to choose from a full array of options.
Develop enhanced working relationships with ODEP, OSEP, WHD, CMS, and other agencies.
Create strong working relationships with other advocacy organizations on common issues.
Represent ACCSES Members before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights to explain that a full array of options IS a civil right.
 

Help fund our legislative efforts and significant projects that recognize the important role that DSPs play!
