The New Jersey Legislative Disability Caucus
I am proud to join this new bipartisan caucus with members of both the Assembly and Senate to focus on issues and challenges of the disability community in the Garden State. The caucus will be hosting meetings in our district offices; participating in quarterly education forums; and working to promote policies to improve the lives of people with disabilities and to consider the impact on the disability community in shaping all public policies in New Jersey. Our kick-off meeting was held via Zoom on January 26, 2021.
The pandemic has exacerbated the challenges faced by the disabled community which makes this caucus all the more relevant and important. The key to our success, however, is public input and engagement. I encourage individuals with disabilities, their families and organizations that serve, support and advocate for individuals to share their feedback and to get involved with the Caucus by visiting our website: https://njcdd.org/legislative-disability-caucus/
Book Drive Celebrating the Future of our Children
In an effort to foster the joy of reading, we are launching a book drive now through the end of March to benefit the children enrolled in the YM/YWCA day care and early education learning centers throughout the 16th District.
By donating a book, you will be helping the YM/YW day care and learning centers provide their students with the tools and resources they need to succeed in life. The education and socialization services ensure that everyone, regardless of ability, gender, race, national origin, or income has the opportunity to reach their full potential with dignity.
Donating is easy, just click on the below link, choose your preferred YM/YW facility, and go shopping for a book or books among a specially selected inventory. You will receive a tax receipt from our online partner YouGiveGoods, which has successfully partnered with us on other 16th District outreach initiatives.
