ICAN has embarked on an exciting project to expand its membership base. Going beyond individual members, the organization is now exploring institutional membership with centers where community members already gather. This past month staff has been on the road communicating this idea to faith groups across the state. An initial conversation was also started with the disability rights community.
Through partnership with these organizations, we hope to elevate the voice of communities we represent. As the decision makers (politicians/bureaucrats) make it challenging for marginalized voices to be heard, we must organize together to ensure our voices are heard.
