The Utah Democratic Disability Caucus welcomes anyone with any disability, and anyone interested in disability issues. The partnership of people with disabilities, and those concerned about disability issues, will give representation, voice and power for everyone throughout the State. We have the opportunity to do away with stigma and improve attitudes; to educate and gain support.
Please encourage everyone you know, with like beliefs, to join our Caucus. You do not have to be a delegate - or a Democrat - to attend any of our Caucus meetings, as long as you are like-minded on our issues.
WITH YOUR HELP, WE CAN CHANGE UTAH!
Anyone can join our portal, contribute and publish. We ask that content, even if negative, not be abusive.

Starting today, Caucus news can be found on the left side bar. Click on a named topic (such as "Disability Caucus Results", and it will show the different blogs under that topic). To add a blog on a different topic, click on "Creat A Topic". Again, anyone who joins the Portal can add and reply to blogs, videos, news articals, etc.
Basic Blog Directions:
When you log in there should appear a button that reads “add a blog post” underneath the “latest news” section toward the bottom of your screen. You may need to scroll down a bit to see it. When you click on this button there should appear a page where you can add a title, a picture and text much the same way you do with news and articles. Once your blog is written, hit submit and make sure everything looks the way you want it to. Then go to the “feature settings” button and make sure your blog post is featured on your portal home page and on any other pages you had selected it to appear when you created it initially.
Keep in mind, every time you create a new blog post you are going to need to deselect the featured settings for the old post and just mark it as appearing in the list of blog posts instead of being featured on your home page. Your new post will also need to be marked as your featured post. If you forget to deselect but just continually make your new post your “featured” post, it will simply rotate through featured posts continually with different posts being featured as people visit your site.
I am not selecting "featured blog", so everything will show easily.
