Successful Advocacy

Educating about DSP Wages

During the 2017 Indiana Legislative Session, Stone Belt joined The Arc in advocating for an increase in wages for direct support professionals. That wage increase was passed by the state and approved by the federal government. We created this video to educate and engage legislators on the issue of DSP wages.

Taking Action

Our staff, board of directors, and self-advocates engage legislators on both the state and federal levels.
