Voices Matter is a community-based self-advocacy group sponsored by the Montgomery County Board of Developmental Disabilities Services. The group meets the fourth Thursday of every month from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at various locations throughout the community. For information about the group or meetings, call 937-837-9279 or email Voices Matter.
Voices Matter collaborates with other organizations on projects, and organizes a yearly Self-Advocacy Conference with the Greene County Board of Developmental Disabilities' self-advocacy group for people with developmental disabilities. Its members also speak to community groups, service providers, peers and members of the media on disability-related issues.
The group has also created a blog, which can be found at voicesmatterblog.wordpress.com.
