Policy and Legislative Action Network

Read DRNM’s Legislative Updates here.

DRNM is supporting a statewide campaign by the Developmental Disabilities Support Division (DDSD) of New Mexico’s Department of Health called “Know Your Rights.”  The purpose of this campaign is to support New Mexicans with intellectual and developmental disabilities as they exercise their right to participate in fully integrated living, vocational, educational, recreational, social and leisure activities in the community. You are invited to the Town Hall meetings listed below to speak with state administrators, care providers, advocates, and others to learn about your rights and share your experiences.  Come learn and share about your right to:

  • Full access to the community
  • Gainful employment
  • Control of your own money and resources
  • Enjoy privacy, dignity, respect, and freedom
  • Make choices about your environment and daily activities
