APSE’s Public Policy Liaisons

As part of APSE’s advocacy efforts we have organized a Public Policy Liaison’s group so that we can support state’s structures for public policy advocacy. 

Each APSE State Chapter has a Public Policy Liaison who:
  • Serves as a point person to share ideas, experiences and updates from within states (focused primarily on Employment First policy and practice developments);
  • Attends monthly calls and shares updates from his or her state;
  • Works collaboratively to develop a “standard” state employment policy agenda that states can customize and start/continue working on within states; and
  • Ensures that there are timely responses to APSE Advocacy Alerts and that state chapters have a presence in regards to policy developments.

We have some exciting developments to look forward to this year including putting together legislative advocacy webinars, one-pagers, state Twitter chats, and presentations about what our state chapters are doing to advocate for pro-employment policies. We also will be holding specific webinars in August to help organize state Take Your Legislator to Work Day campaigns as part of National Disability Employment Awareness Month this October.
