ADVOCACY AND LEGISLATION

Paralyzed Veterans of America – Wisconsin Chapter (PVA-WI) listens to the concerns and challenges that our members face. We use the power of our membership and national affiliations to educate lawmakers and communities about the needs of those with disabilities. We work with local communities where our members live; we advocate for improvements so our members have equal access to everyday living.

Addressing the needs of our paralyzed veterans enhances accessibility for everyone. As we change stereotypes and break down barriers, the American Disability Act (ADA) standards become the norm. This ambitious goal is priority #1 as we shape accessibility for future generations.

Within our state, we partner with other ADA advocates ensuring that hunting, fishing, gaming, and all outdoor activities are accessible for everyone. Our grass roots advocacy aligns closely with scouting programs, K-12 educators and students to bring creative solutions to everyday problems.

Our Government Relations/Advocacy Team is ready to assist our members with their unique needs ensuring Wisconsin is accessible for all.  Join our advocacy team and click Take Action Now below.
