It is time to ask for nominations for the Michel Lechner Advocacy Award. The deadline for nominations is October 11th.
Every year the Kansas Commission on Disability Concerns (KCDC) recognizing one or more persons or organizations for their advocacy work during 2018 to improve their community or the State of Kansas for people with disabilities. To nominate someone or an organization you need to provide a summary of the nominee's advocacy activities including: the issue/situation; nominee's activities that improved the condition or situation; and the geographic area of Kansas in which the improvement occurred. It also helps to have a support letter from someone else praising the nominees advocacy efforts.

This is the Kansas Commission on Disability Concerns (KCDC) 70th anniversary and we want to be sure we have several nominations.
We will present the awards at our November 15 commission meeting.
