Voices That Count is an annual conference, created and implemented by the Virgin Islands Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities (VIUCEDD), which uniquely brings together all stakeholders involved with making improvements to the quality of life for people with disabilities in the Virgin Islands community. The attendees include members from all three branches of the Virgin Islands’ Government (Legislative, Judicial and Executive), the University of the Virgin Islands, Department of Education, Department of Human Services, AARP, people with disabilities, caregivers, family members, businesses, and community leaders and advocates. The vision of this forum is that the efforts of VIUCEDD and the VI community at large, will help potential policy makers better understand about the issues and barriers that people with disabilities face daily while living in our community.
This conference is also used as an opportunity for VIUCEDD to continue its mission of enhancing the quality of life for individuals with disabilities and their families; and to provide them with tools necessary for independence, productivity and full inclusion. Attendees also have an opportunity, during the forum to directly speak with the legislators in attendance. The hope is that through this dialogue the legislators will know that every voice counts and be a part of the "Call to Action!"
