Visited office and left packet. Followed up with this email:

Good Morning Joe,

I just stopped by Congressman Richmond's office and the gentleman in the front was kind enough to give me your information.

I am writing to follow up on the Disability Integration Act (HR2472). I believe your office may have already heard from the Louisiana disability rights group Trach Mommas about this important bill. I also left an information packet about the bill at your office for you to review.

The Disability Integration Act is a bill that would assure that disabled and elderly Americans have the right to live in the community instead of being forced to go to nursing facilities if they need help.

The are only four Democrats on the Judiciary Committee who are not yet cosponsors of this bill and Congressman Richmond is the of them (however, Rep. Cicilline recently committed to cosponsor, so it will soon be only 3).

I am in D.C. all day today and until 3pm tomorrow. I would be happy to meet with you for a few minutes about the bill and answer any questions you may have. We would like Congressman Richmond to cosponsor the DIA before session ends and also commit to cosponsoring the bill when it is reintroduced in January.

Thank you,

Stephanie Woodward
