Public Policy

The North Dakota Disabilities Advocacy Consortium (NDDAC) is a statewide association of organizations who advocate for public policies that support people with disabilities. The NDDAC membership includes advocates (1) with lived experience as people with disabilities and family members, and (2) organizations who represent people with disabilities. The NDDAC’s advocacy efforts are not defined by any specific type of disability, age, and/or cultural elements. The NDDAC strives to ensure that service delivery systems and supports are both person-centered and family-centered. Its approach to addressing community needs is to take on environmental, policy, and social barriers that challenge individuals with disabilities to live full lives, rather than considering changing the individual.
