S. Poost called the office and was given the contact information for Bailey Perkins (updated c4ci). She then sent the following email to Bailey Perkins:
My name is Sophie Poost and I???m a member of the national disability rights group, ADAPT. I am writing to inquire about the Congresswoman???s stance on the Disability Integration Act (HR.555), a bi-partisan, bi-cameral civil rights bill that was introduced on January 15th by Representative Jim Sensenbrenner and Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. The Disability Integration Act or DIA would ensure that elderly and disabled Americans had the right to choose where and how they live and not be forced into institutions.
We feel this bill is especially pertinent in March, during Women???s History Month, as the components of this bill directly address issues that disproportionately impact women. As women tend to live longer than men, they are more likely to acquire a disability in their later years. Furthermore, women more often fill attendant and voluntary/informal caregiver roles a topic that is directly addressed in this legislation.
We would really like to see Representative Hill on this legislation both because of her past work dedicated to the advancement of women leaders and also as a woman in leadership now. I???ve attached a document with some basic information on the bill. I hope you will look it over and Congresswoman Horn will consider cosponsorship. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to reach out to me or if you want to sign the Representative on to the legislation please reach out to Amy Bos in Representative Sensenbrenner???s office to be added to the bill.
Thank you for your time,
