Kansans with disabilities have a new opportunity to influence policy-makers at the local, state, and federal level by joining a new advocacy organization called KANDO. KANDO, Kansas Advocacy Network Disability Organization, is a grassroots organization that connects people across the entire state in order to give a voice to issues that impact the lives of people with disabilities. No one knows our issues better than we do, yet so often, we let others decide what is best for us. Becoming a member of KANDO empowers us to speak in one voice on the critical issues facing people with disabilities today while developing new peer relationships in the process.

A group of like-minded people are in the process of creating a statewide organization called Kansas Advocacy Network- Disability Organization or KAN-DO. KAN-DO members will have a Facebook page where all members can speak freely.

KAN-DO members will have a monthly phone call to discuss the latest involvement issues for people with disabilities and good old fashioned peer sharing. Most important this will be a card carrying disability community organization.

Membership fee is $5 annually and there is a monthly conference call to discuss important issues.
