Dispatch from Jones St: People First Update
What an amazing day today has been for disability rights advocates! This morning the School Violence Prevention Act made it out of its final committee and is headed for the House floor and this afternoon SB208 People First bill made it out of the House State Government committee and may also be headed for the House floor!!!
Congratulations to everyone who has worked so very hard on these bills. We need you to make your voices heard over the next day by calling your Representatives and asking them to support both of these bills.
