Message and Talking Points

On or about December 3, 2019, Dawn, Jackie and Jordan (Denver) and Katy C. by phone met with Andrew, the Chief of Staff. Andrew said he did "not want to be that person telling us how to do our advocacy." He noted that Pallone's staffer would likely tell him to "eff off." He asserted that his office knew exactly what they were signing on to, contrary to what Pallone's staff claimed. He said, "Just because the world isn't designed for you doesn't mean we shouldn't make it so."Cautioned that a discharge petition is provocative. Wondered about a letter to sign on to and create pressure. Dawn mentioned Lamborn.

Hi Christina,

I am reaching out to ask if Representative Maloney will cosponsor the Disability Integration Act again. The DIA was reintroduced last week as HR. 555 (and in the Senate it was introduced by Minority Leader Schumer as S. 117). The bill is both bicameral and bipartisan, and already has 52 cosponsors in the House. Last session Rep. Maloney cosponsored the bill, then known as HR 2472. The bill is substantially the same with minor technical edits which were suggested by AARP.

Will Representative Maloney cosponsor DIA?


Stephanie Woodward, J.D.
Co-chair of the Disability Integration Act Workgroup
