Partners in Policymaking Newsletters

Partners in Policymaking® is an innovative leadership program created specifically to teach people with disabilities and the parents of young children with disabilities to:

    • Become agents of long-term change
    • Become active partners with the policymakers whose decisions will shape their future
    • Dream about a future with possibilities
    • Become empowered, strengthened, and encouraged to advocate within your community

Over 400 people in South Carolina—and thousands more around the world—have graduated from Partners in Policymaking® classes since the course’s development by the Minnesota Developmental Disabilities Council in 1987. There have been 23 Partners in Policymaking® classes in South Carolina since 1999. Alumni have gone on to contribute to non-profit boards, planning committees, government councils, legislative testimony, and a variety of leadership positions across the state. South Carolina Partners in Policymaking® is produced by the South Carolina Developmental Disabilities Council.
