A statewide Disability Rights Day was held annually at the State Capitol in Baton Rouge for many years. Disability Rights Day was not held in 2018 and one is not planned for 2019. Instead, LaCAN members are encouraged to participate in LaCAN’s Yellow Shirt Days throughout the Legislative Session, held on days when legislators and BESE members are considering issues important to people with developmental disabilities.
