This episode is an invitation to all of us to join the army of parents like Jenny in improving policies that directly affect our loved ones and others with disabilities.
While you’re listening, maybe an issue you’ve run into will pop into your head that you want to tackle, or maybe you can tuck this episode in your back pocket in case you run into issues that matter to you in the future.
In this episode, Jenny shares her victory in making in-home nursing more accessible to trach and ventilator-dependent California residents by lobbying at the state level.
She also teaches us how we can get our hands wet in state-level advocacy, beginning with issues that matter to us personally.
These are civil rights issues. People with disabilities matter.
