Washington State advocates are taking the lead once again. After meeting with Washington State Allies in Advocacy, U.S. Representative Derek Kilmer entered the Proclamation for the Dignity and Rights for all Human Beings into the Congressional Record.
In his address to the Speaker, Rep. Kilmer states:
“I was pleased to meet with individuals from my region and the Washington State Developmental Disabilities Council about important
issues concerning people with developmental disabilities.I support their advocacy effort for people with developmental disabilities and programs
that support them. The Washington State Allies in Advocacy has issued a Proclamation for the Dignity and Rights for all Human Beings and I am
honored to submit a copy.”
As the saying goes, Change is made by those who show up. Hats off to this group of committed advocates for showing up and being counted.
