Know Your Rights Campaign - Summary

Good morning.  On behalf of the Know Your Rights Steering Comm. I would like to thank all of you for participating in our KYR Town Halls .  We recently completed our final Town Hall which included 10 Town Halls across the state with almost 600 people attending.  The conversation and engagement was phenomenal and we greatly appreciate people's involvement and passion for this initiative.  As promised the summaries of each of the Town Hall meetings have been posted on the DDSD website at

Attached is some important information including the beginning of Frequently Asked Questions from the Town Halls.  Additional FAQ's on specific topic areas is forthcoming. Please distribute information to advocates, families, friends, guardians, colleagues, providers, community members, etc. as we continue to provide outreach and education on Know Your Rights. If you know of anyone who would like to be added to this distribution list please send me an email.


 For additional information and updates go to DDSD's website.  Again thank you for your participation and interest as we move forward together to implement the vision of the Know Your Rights campaign.
