ADVOCACY- PAVING the Way for Others
World Down Syndrome Day
One of my favorite day each year is World Down syndrome Day. Here I am speaking to my Akron City Council about the importance of acceptance of all people in our community. Be an advocate. Take action and ask to speak to YOUR City Council on WDSD.
2018 Cleveland City Council
Cleveland City Council and The Up Side of Downs chose me as the 2018 Advocate of the Year.
2016 Carlene Weaver Achievement Award
I was selected as the first recipient of The Carlene Weaver Achievement Award in 2016. This was presented to me by the Summit DD for my self-advocacy work. For over 15 years, I have been proud to work with the Summit DD to raise awareness about our abilities, not disabilities. I want the world to be a better place for all of us to live, work and play.
