National disability organizations consider the current changes to the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) and Medicaid to be the biggest dangers to health care and long-term care for people with disabilities in recent memory.

This puts Wisconsin services and programs like Family Care, IRIS, the Children's Long Term Support Waivers, the Katie Beckett program, Birth to 3, school therapies, and Medicaid Personal Care at significant risk.

Lynn Breedlove and Lisa Pugh will present the latest news on current proposals in Congress which would radically change supports available to people with disabilities and their families and negatively impact the local economy/jobs in Wisconsin.  

       Attend this training to learn what is at risk in your community and participate in small group strategy discussions to develop an Action Plan for your Congressional district.  

- Lynn Breedlove is Co-Chair, Wisconsin Long-Term Care Coalition and previously the Executive Director of Disability Rights WI.

- Lisa Pugh is the Executive Director of the Arc Wisconsin.
