What a great legislative session!  One of the highlights for me was watching the disability awareness bill get passed.

This bill is important to me as a person with a disability; but most importantly, it was a youth-driven initiative.

Youth from schools got together to advocate for this bill.  They spoke to legislators and even made a video about why they wanted to see this bill get passed.

These youth took this project on and made it their own.  It just goes to show that youth do have a place in the workings of our government.
