First we attended an Ability Camp on the field of Mile High put on by the National Sports Center for the Disabled….they are my new favorite group. We had such a blast.
Then over to outside our GOP Senator’s office to excercise our civic rights trying to prevent federal cuts to the only program that will pay for long term health services so that folks with disabilities can stay in their own homes in their communities. Ds been advocating for services for himself and others with disabilities for almost fifteeen years now. He deserves to be able to live where he wants, not where its most convenient. He chooses home with his family, so we better show up so those that have power remember this population are living breathing humans. He may be nonverbal so it’s up to me to make sure his voice is heard.
