Louisiana Council's Advocacy Network (LaCAN)

LaCAN (Louisiana Council's Advocacy Network) furthers the Council's mission by advocating for policies and systems that support inclusion everywhere people learn, work, live, and play.  LaCAN advocates for service systems that support children and adults with disabilities to live in their own homes and be fully-included and participating members of their local schools and communities.

LaCAN provides information and support to individuals wishing to effectively advocate for systems change in the areas of home and community-based services, education, and employment.  Regional LaCAN teams include individuals with disabilities, their family members, and professionals.  These members are notified by email or phone when communication with state agency officials, legislators or the Governor is necessary.
