PUBLIC POLICY AND SYSTEMS CHANGE COMMITMENT

NCCDD’s mission is to engage in advocacy and systems change activities that will support the estimated 172,000 persons in North Carolina with intellectual and other developmental disabilities and their families. Through public policy, the Council strives to ensure that individuals and their families can contribute to the design of and have access to culturally competent services and supports, as well as other assistance and opportunities, which promote inclusive communities. The Council calls these activities “building bridges to community.”

The federal Developmental Disabilities Act (DD Act) calls for individuals with intellectual and other developmental disabilities, and their families to participate in the policymaking process and to educate leaders and policymakers at the local, state, and national level.
