We will form advocacy groups for issues that are important to our members. We seek to find DCD members who are also active in other organizations that can help to keep us informed of specific issues, events and/or legislation that we can help support, as well as members who are willing to work to support an issue. If you are involved with an issue or wish to become involved please let us know.
