The following thank you email was sent 5/29/19:
We wanted to thank you again for meeting with us May 16th to discuss the Disability Integration Act (HR 555). We appreciate your time and we most definitely appreciate Congressman Yarmuth???s co-sponsorship of this landmark civil rights legislation for people with disabilities.
The promises of the Americans with Disabilities Act cannot be fulfilled for people trapped behind the walls of institutions. HR 555, the Disability Integration Act, will further ???tear down the shameful walls of exclusion??? by reinforcing the right for people with disabilities to live in the most integrated setting, and by building a framework for ensuring our communities offer meaningful access, services and supports.
We look forward to Congressman Yarmuth???s continued support of the Disability Integration Act and the civil rights of all people with disabilities.

Jennifer, ADAPT of Texas

Justin Young on 5/15/19 left a voicemail with Katy Rowley. Justin Young also sent the following message:
My name is Justin Young and I am associated with the national disability rights group called ADAPT. ADAPT advocates at the National, State, and Local levels for systematic change ensuring the rights of the Disability community are fulfilled. I left you a voicemail this afternoon regarding this matter, but I am sending this message to request Representative Yarmuth cosponsor the Disability Integration Act (HR555) introduced by Representative Sensenbrenner.
I have attached a handout to this email regarding the bill, but the purpose of this legislation is to ensure we have the right to live in freedom. Many Disabled Americans are forced into Institutions because there is a lack of accessible, affordable, integrated housing. We would appreciate Representative Yarmuth???s support by cosponsoring this important legislation for all Kentuckians and Americans with Disabilities.
ADAPT will be in Washington D.C. next week and if the Representative signs on to the legislation, we would like to stop by and say thank you. Cosponsorship requests may be sent to Amy Bos in Representative Sensenbrenner???s office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you in advance for looking at the bill and I hope to hear from you in the near future that Representative Yarmuth will cosponsor this legislation.
Justin T. Young
