Each month BPDD features a different leader in Wisconsin living with a disability. “What’s the Word?” is an opportunity to hear directly from self-advocates about what’s important to them. This month’s column comes from Philip Temme, a Madison area advocate who talks about how important the upcoming census this month is for the disability community.. Philip is active in the community and does lots of public speaking through BPDD and his employer The Management Group. Philip is also one of the co-hosts of the Self-Determination YouTube channel, so you may recognize him from that!
