Subject: DIA (HR555) follow up

Dear Catherine,

I'm with the Disability Rights organization ADAPT. My colleague Stephanie Woodward and I spoke with you about a week ago to discuss the Disability Integration Act (HR555). When we spoke you said that you thought the bill might be something Congressman Levin would be willing to cosponsor and that you needed to speak with him. I was wondering if you have had a chance to speak with him yet and if we could expect him to be added as a cosponsor? I am available to answer any questions should you have them or my colleagues in DC would be more than happy to come in and talk further about the bill.

Catherine Rowland responded via email telling that she could not meet with us this week but could meet us on Monday. National ADAPT replied asking if we could do a conference call on Monday.

National ADAPT stopped by Rep. Levin's office asking for Catherine Rowland. The staffer said she is not available. Sent an email to Catherine requesting a meeting either tomorrow or Wednesday.

"Congratulations on your victory in the recent election and welcome to Congress. I am writing on behalf of the Disability Community to ask you to become an original cosponsor of the Disability Integration Act. The Disability Integration Act is bicameral, bipartisan legislation that guarantees the rights of disabled Americans to live in freedom by ensuring our right to receive services in our own homes. If you have any questions about the bill I am happy to answer them or you are welcome to look at our web site:

We are holding an event in the U.S. Capitol on January 15th to celebrate the bill???s reintroduction. We would like to announce you as an original cosponsor of the bill at the event. Would you please confirm your intention to be an original cosponsor on the legislation? We would be grateful for your leadership in helping ensure that all disabled Americans have the right to live in freedom."
