On 5/15/19, Sophie Poost spoke on the phone with Gary (or maybe Gerald?) who transferred her to Ijeoma. Ijeoma said she has a meeting with Georgia ADAPT on the 20th, and will be able to follow up about the bill on that day.

About 20 minutes later she received an email from, to which she sent the following response:
Good Afternoon,
I just received a call from your organization. I already have my first meeting with Georgia ADAPT scheduled for next week and I plan to follow up with them about this legislation. Please remove me from these listservs.


Ijeoma A. Egekeze
Legislative Assistant
Congressman David Scott (GA-13)
225 Cannon House Office Building

Stephanie Woodward sent the following email as a response to Ijeoma:

Hi Ijeoma,

This is not a listserv. This is a request from the Disability Community for the Congressman to support our rights. While we have a meeting scheduled next week, we have been making this request of Congressman Scott since January.

As a staffer for the Congressman, the Disability Community will continue to reach out to you until the Congressman tells us whether or not he supports our right to live in freedom. You shouldn't need a meeting to answer that question, especially since he cosponsored last session.

We would like to thank you for the Congressman's support at the meeting next week, but in order to do that, the Congressman must cosponsor this week.

ON April 19, Sophie sent the following email to Ijeoma:

Good Afternoon,

A few members of ADAPT, myself included, stopped by the office last week in hopes of speaking with you about the Disability Integration Act or HR. 555. My cohort sent you an email soon after asking that Representative Scott cosponsor the Disability Integration Act in this Congress, just like he did in the last Congress. I am reaching out to you to see if you have had the chance to review the new language and make a decision about cosponsorship. Attached is a one-pager on the bill to help refresh your memory. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to me or Amy Bos in Representative Sensenbrenner???s office.

Thank you!
Sophie Poost
National ADAPT

On April 8, S. Woodward, S. Poost, K. Carroll, and L. Halvorson stopped by the office because the representative was previously on the bill and asked if he would cosponsor again. The staffer was not in the office so K. Carroll sent an email asking for a follow up.
