Henry and Evelyne Milorin joined Leo Live on Monday, June 15. The discussion touched on their decades long journey as parents and advocates, including raising Reggie, who was identified as having autism. They also had an opportunity to talk about the intersection of race and disability, especially given current ongoing activism.
In last week’s update, we referenced our concerns about our immediate future. The past week was a somber one as we approached mid-June. We need to maintain hope in the midst of uncertainty. Together, we can advocate to have adequate PPE and testing on demand available for all our constituents, including those in family homes who utilize in-home staff.
It’s been a few days since our last update. Much has happened. As you read the short bullets below, know that on our recently launched COVID-19 Updates Center we’ll be posting links or certain files for you to dig deeper. To all families, individuals with disabilities living independently, our chapters, and fellow helping agencies, public and private across the state: hang in there.
