Come join us at the Henry M. Jackson Federal Building every Tuesday at 11:45am for our Resist Trump Tuesday Rally, with speakers and live music, followed by a 12:30PM meeting with Senator Murray and Cantwell's staff. This week, we will be discussing the Disability Integration Act (SB 910), which would require community based services to be offered to those with disabilities before institutionalization. Our featured speaker will be Janine Bertram, one of the national founding mothers of ADAPT. Whether or not you've heard of ADAPT, we've all seen them in action. It was ADAPT members we saw in the national news last year chaining their wheelchairs to MoCs' office furniture to stop the ACA repeal. We are honored to have Janine Bertram explain this important bill to us, and why ADAPT wants our senators to support SB 910.
Following our discussion on SB 910, Julie Negrin and Alycia Ramirez will give us an update on the DACA/Dreamer stalemate. This issue has renewed intensity as Dreamers' lives are hanging in the balance with the March 5th end to the DACA program looming, no agreement on a DACA fix and government funding running out again on February 8th. Come join us for this jam-packed rally, followed by a meeting with Senators Murray and Cantwell's staff from 12:30-1:30PM.
