(St. George, UT) - Red Rock Center for Independence (RRCI) along with the Utah Grassroots Advocacy Program (GAP) extends an invitation to the community to attend a “Meet the Candidates” day on Thursday, October 25, 2012 from 2:00-4:00 PM at the St. George Library Room A at 88 W. 100 S. St. George, UT 84770. We have received attendance confirmations from several local 2012 electoral candidates with more coming in daily. Red Rock Center for Independence encourages people with disabilities to become registered voters and learn all they can about the candidates and how their policies relate to the disability community. Candidates have been provided this opportunity to get to know some of their constituents, including those with disabilities. This event is nonpartisan. Please contact Jamie Moore or Sonjia Schugk at 435-673-7501 for more information.
The Red Rock Center for Independence (Center) is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that came into existence in 1997 to serve people with disabilities in nine southwestern Utah counties. In keeping with the core services model of the national movement, the Center teaches independent living skills, teaches and provides individual and systems advocacy, creates peer support opportunities, and connects individuals with other community services through information and referral practices. Working closely with support service agencies in nine counties provides a collaborative network ensuring that the services provided by the Center are not duplicated.
