This year’s reception at the Massachusetts State House recognized the importance of ending bias and stigma against people with I/DD that are barriers to their employment, independence, and equality, and the ways in which these biases are also reflected in the treatment of their direct support providers. This event was hosted by The Arc of Massachusetts and the Massachusetts Developmental Disabilities Council. The MSSN was a proud co-sponsor of the event and was glad to be in attendance!
