You are cordially invited to attend the release of the Annual Compendium of Disability Statistics and the Second Annual Research-to-Policy Roundtable meeting in Washington, DC. Both events will be held on Wednesday, November 28, 2012 at the Dirksen Senate Office Building, Room SD-G50.
The Compendium Release Briefing*, held from 9:00–11:30am, will include a briefing and a one-hour workshop on the sources and uses of disability statistics. The Compendium is a web-based tool that pools disability statistics published by various federal agencies together in one place. When working on legislative and other matters relating to persons with disabilities, the Compendium will make finding and using disability statistics easier. It will prove invaluable to your work.
The Research-to-Policy Roundtable, scheduled from 1:00–3:00pm, will provide an opportunity for disability advocates, policymakers and researchers to discuss ways that research can assist policymakers in developing programs, policies, and legislation that support people with disabilities.
Lunch (optional) will be provided free of charge for all participants.
*For individuals who cannot attend the Compendium Release Briefing in person, this session will be available live via webcast. Individuals who register to attend online will receive more information and a link to the public webcast a week prior to the event. In addition to the live webcast, the video will be archived and available for viewing a later date.
