Thank you for recognition as an Legacy Leader. I have had the privilege of working with and on behalf of people with I/DD for over 40 years, and this work and the relationships I have developed have enriched my life immeasurably. I am grateful for the strides we have made in creating a world where people live with meaning and purpose, and our collective success at expanding the opportunities available to those of varying abilities.
