I encourage each person in the disability community to bring heightened awareness and wisdom to the challenges that people with disabilities face every moment of every day.
I teach how to be person-centered, how to approach relationship-building with intention, how to see challenges as gifts and how to bring dignity of life into conversations about services and supports.
I fight to bring justice and close the gap in protections against abuse of people with disabilities, whose rights to safety and peaceful membership in communities are fundamental and must be protected.
You cannot hope to build a better world without improving the individuals. To that end, each of us must work for his own improvement and, at the same time, share a general responsibility for all humanity, our particular duty being to aid those to whom we think we can be most useful.Marie Curie
