I was proud to stand with Mayor Muriel Bowser and other advocates on March 20 as she celebrated Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month by signing the Disability Services Reform Amendment Act of 2018 (http://lims.dccouncil.us/Legislation/B22-0154?FromSearchResults=true). Deputy Mayor HyeSook Chung joined her as well, staying for amazing performances, interviews and proclamations at the “See Me for Me” event which took place at the headquarters of the Department on Disability Services. Read more about this important event at https://tinyurl.com/ybuqzxbn and https://tinyurl.com/yacl7lmq. I hope that DDS will post pictures of some of the most memorable moments to its website.
If you testified, or wrote a single email or letter to the council as the DSRAA bill (B22-0154) was considered over the past several years, you played a key role as well. So congratulate yourself on a job well done!
