OCCK Had a Great Showing at Interhab’s Advocacy Day

OCCK had almost 100 people join the 700 people attending the Advocacy Day in Topeka on March 26.     Advocacy Day is an annual event in Topeka for people with IDD, their families, friends, providers, and disability advocates to come together and educate their legislators by sharing stories and experiences with their legislators.

The day was filled with speakers expressing the need to increase funding for providers, money for wait list, and visits with our legislators.   One of the high lights was Governor Laura Kelly who addressed the crowd.     Many of OCCK attendees also spoke before the group.

Interhab represents business and individuals who provide community base services for Kansans who received benefits through Medicaid.

It was a fun event, and we appreciate all who made this day possible.
