COMMISSION FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES

 

The mission of the Denver Commission for People with Disabilities (DCPD) is to promote and enhance equality for people with disabilities through empowerment, advocacy, and education by working with community members, as well as City and County of Denver officials and employees who have the ability to affect change. 


2018 Commission Goals

Develop an Employment Resource Guide

The commission received numerous requests for a resource guide after its 2017 Employment Symposium to continue to emphasize the importance of the employment of people with disabilities to potential employers and employees. Given our unique leadership role, the commission felt that there is an inherit responsibility of our commission to the citizens of Denver and the surrounding area to provide a guide for employment resources and more.

 

 

Create an awareness campaign that addresses the challenges faced by people with disabilities 

To build public awareness of disability issues by focusing on what inclusion means, and to highlight the City and County of Denver efforts to support people with disabilities.
