History is made

Wednesday, January 8, 2021, will go down in American history.

It is the day protesters stormed the Capital Building in Washington D.C. As an advocate, I have been a part of my fair share of rallies and protests and have always done so peacefully.

We need to come together to listen and be kind to each other. In the words of Nelson Mandela "If you want to make peace with your enemy, you have to work with your enemy. Then he becomes your partner."

-Jamie Lazaroff, Self Advocate Coordinator
