On September 19th, the Arc of Louisiana hosted a gubernatorial panel for candidates to answer questions on disability focused topics so that the community can have a more informed understanding of the candidates’ stance and potential policy initiatives.
LEND Scholar and Self-Advocate Jakeel Abdullah broke down the panel’s questions. Hear what candidates Shawn Wilson (D), Stephen Waguespack (R), Hunter Lundy (I), Richard Nelson (R), John Schroder (R), and Sharon Hewitt (R) had to say.
The governor’s primary election is set for Saturday, October 14. Early voting is available now until Saturday, October 7th.
October is recognized as National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) by the U.S. Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP). NDEAM celebrates the contributions of people with disabilities to America’s workplaces and economy. ODEP has chosen “Advancing Access and Equity” as this year’s theme for NDEAM.
Scholars Madison Humphries and Mary Katherine Hadden of HDC’s Interprofessional Preparation Program (IPP) were chosen to present at the 2023 OSEP Combined Leadership and Project Directors’ Conference on July 24-26 in Arlington, VA.
