I am a husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend. I believe in sharing my talents and experiences by giving back to the community by giving my time to coaching, church and especially to the disability community. I truly believe that all men and women are created equally.
In 1987 President Reagan (http://www.reagan.utexas.edu/archives/speeches/1987/022687c.htm) declared March, Developmental Disability Awareness Month. While much has been achieved, we still have a long way to go. Many individuals with Developmental Disabilities still face discrimination today.
4 sessions down only 2 left. It seems like yesterday that I started the Partners in Policymaking class. We started by learning the history of the disability rights movement. This past session we had the opportunity to speak to a couple of legislators and lobbyists.
