CTD’s 35th Annual Convention

Coalition of Texans with Disabilities' 35 Annual Convention

March 3 - 5, advocates and professionals from all over the state gathered in Austin for CTD's 35th Annual Convention. With session underway, advocacy was the focus of our efforts. Highlights of this year's convention include:

A crowd of people, many wearing yellow caps, stand or sit in front of the Texas Capitol, which stretches in a bright blue sky.

The convention ended with a bang: the Texas Medicaid Matters March & Rally, the largest disability rights rally in Texas history! Some 3,000 advocates met at the Capitol under an incredibly blue sky, where speakers from all over the state shared their stories and encouragement. A barrage of legislative visits followed.

Thanks to all who attended and supported this event!
