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.
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.
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.
The Denver Commission for People with Disabilities meets the 1st Tuesday of each month from 5:30pm-7:00pm at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, Suite 106, 2001 Colorado Blvd, Denver, CO 80205. All meetings are open to the public.
