HARRISBURG, Oct. 19, 2015 – To help decision makers better understand the needs of Pennsylvanians with disabilities, state Sen. Christine M. Tartaglione will once again hold her “Disabilities Day at the Capitol.”

“I hold Disabilities Day to help people with disabilities find gainful employment, and to help employers without those same disabilities better understand what it’s like to have them,” Sen. Tartaglione said. “It also serves a good purpose by educating employers about the things they can do to help workers with disabilities be as productive as they expect.”

Joining the senator during her annual awareness event will be L&I Bureau of Blindness and Visual Services, Magee Rehabilitation Hospital in Philadelphia, PA Statewide Independent Living Council, Penn State University Extension, PA Office of Vocational Rehabilitation, Susquehanna Service Dogs, Self Determination Housing Project of Pennsylvania, UniqueSource, and United Cerebral Palsy of Central Pennsylvania.

Media coverage is encouraged.
