Thanks for Making Lobby Day a Success!

Thank you all for taking the time to attend Lobby Day. Over 500 self-advocates, families, staff, Board members and other supporters participated by meeting with their state representatives and state senators, speaking with legislative staff, filling-out Leave Behind forms, talking to reporters, and sharing powerful personal stories. Our presence was definitely felt in the building as a legislative staffer described us as “disrupting the building” as we filled elevators, hallways, and the Atriums. Thank you!
