DD Day at the Legislature

Image of a stick built Capitol building with an orange dome, 3 green stars, and a dark red frame. Under the building are the words, in a matching dark red, "A Virtual Week of Advocacy". To the right are the words "Developmental Disabilities Days" in blue, followed by "At the Legislature" in green. In the top right corner is the Maryland Developmental Disabilities Coalition logo. It is an outline of the state of Maryland, with the regions represented by blue, green, orange, and pea green. Over top of the outline of the state is a circle of stick figure cartoon characters in matching colors.

Developmental Disabilities Days at the Legislature (DD Days) is an event that advocates look forward to all year long! This year, we are expanded our reach through a week of virtual advocacy and opportunities for information and connection with legislators.
