Your elected officials face very difficult choices everyday, and the decisions they make affect your life.  On the issues that matter most to you, are you okay if those decisions are made without your input?

Now more than ever, it is important for people affected by disability to speak up.  The US Congress must cut billions in spending. The Iowa Legislature is in the middle of a major redesign of the state's mental health and disability services system, and funding for it is still up in the air. The people representing you in the US Congress and at the State Capitol need to know your story, so they can make informed decisions.

Iowans with Disabilities in Action (ID Action) and the Iowa Developmental Disabilities Council created this Information Network (infoNET) to give you the information, tools, resources and opportunities you need to take action on the issues important to you.
