For the second year in a row, NorCal SCI’s Carl McGrew will be participating in the Roll on Capitol Hill, United Spinal’s annual legislative advocacy event that addresses issues that impact the health, independence and quality of life of individuals living with spinal cord injuries and disorders, including disabled veterans. The event runs from June 23-26 in Washington, DC where member advocates visit with and educate Congressional leaders about the policy issues affecting the spinal cord injury and disorders (SCI/D) community.
As Carl reported last year, “it felt good taking action to preserve my rights and those of my spinal cord injury family. I am now a better trained advocate, with knowledge of specific concerns confronting our community.”
When he returns, Carl will file a report summarizing the event and his takeaways from this year. Safe travels to you, Carl.
