We are so grateful for you taking the time to attend and hear about the lived experience of your constituents and others who shared emotional stories about what it is like day-to-day and how specific legislation can impact their family’s lives.

OUR VOICE would not be possible without our families and guests coming together to share and listen to one another’s powerful stories.

A SPECIAL THANK YOU to Diana Santiago, Paloma Fernandes, Angela Otiz, Sory DeOliveira, Alex Green, Keila Torres, Jaya Pandey, Ruth Esther de la Cruz, Loida Dominguez, Jennifer Queen, Kelly Quaye, Pricilla Bessa, Regina Robinson, Kathleen Amaral, and Pat MacNeil for contributing to the conversation.
