Take Your Legislator to Work Day is Back in Georgia!
The Georgia Council on Developmental Disabilities (GCDD) is excited to announce the return of Take Your Legislator to Work Day! This is a month-long event that takes place in October to celebrate National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM).
Registration is now open! The earlier you register, the easier scheduling will be with your legislators!
GCDD’s Take Your Legislator to Work Day is an opportunity for employees with disabilities to invite their legislator(s) to visit them at work. All workers with disabilities working in competitive, integrated employment in their community, at or above minimum wage, are encouraged to apply.
Participation is simple! Just click here to start the process and someone from GCDD will contact you within five business days to review your eligibility, process your application and discuss next steps.
IMPORTANT: Please be sure to wait to hear from GCDD first BEFORE you contact your legislator so that we can help ensure you have a successful visit and provide you with the tools you will need.

We believe that visiting an employee at work is the best way to show legislators that people with disabilities want to work and are as capable as anyone at working real, competitive jobs for real wages in integrated settings.
**This is not a Walton Options organized event/activity. If you are interested and need assistance registering, please contact our Augusta office and one of our Independent Living Advocates will be able to assist you.**
