For more that 10 years, each year GMSA has been awarded a legislative action grant called WeCan. The goal of this project funded by the VT Developmental Disabilities Council is to bring the voices of people with developmental disabilities into the political process and support people to speak up to their legislators about issues that are important to them. We also spread positive message about how people with disabilities give as much as they take. We believe that with support we can be contributing members of society and tax paying citizens.
