Welcome to #IWantToWork, a social media self-advocacy campaign powered by young Pennsylvanians with disabilities. Our goal is to make Pennsylvania an Employment First state through legislation to ensure people with disabilities have access to fully integrated employment.

The message is simple

People with disabilities want to work, deserve to work and are great for businesses.
