Here is the story of one of wonderful activists:
"I attended lobby day last year and I always find it to be very exciting. I'm never able to speak to my state rep but I always find someone who will listen. I always seem to get a little anxious, waiting and hoping that my name will be called by one of the doormen. Today I watched as a teen that came with us had her name called. She explained our purpose for being at the capital and handed the state rep a fact sheet about RHAA. The look on the young lady's face was priceless as her state rep told her that she was a co-sponsor for HB6205. Seeing things like this make me love the work that I do and keeps me dedicated." -April Thompson, Age 34
