Legislative Coalition for People with Disabilities

Welcome to LCPD Utah!
 

The Legislative Coalition for People with Disabilities (LCPD) advocates for public policy affecting all people in Utah who have disabilities. Membership is open to all and is comprised of voting and non-voting members. The Coalition is incorporated as a private, non-profit 501(c)3 organization in the state of Utah.
 
 

WHY A COALITION?

 

As with many things in life, the work, the risk taking, and dedication of a few have made life better for many. There exists today a wide array of services for people with disabilities. These services have emerged because of grassroots advocacy by people with disabilities, their families, friends, and caring professionals. The results of advocacy have been encouraging in the past forty years, but the battles guaranteeing the rights of individuals with disabilities are far from over.

 

Since its inception in 1981, the Coalition has successfully advocated for progressive changes for people with disabilities. The LCPD is made up of individuals with disabilities, their families, advocacy groups, providers, professionals, and agencies. You do not need experience in advocacy work to get involved.


Advocacy means "to speak up, to plead the case of another, or to champion a cause." The LCPD makes being an advocate easier by providing a network of support, experience, training, and by dividing responsibilities to enable advocates to focus their energies on single issues.
