United spinal’s seventh annual Roll On Capitol Hill to raise awareness of critical issues impacting the spinal cord injury/disease and veteran communities is set to roll on June 24 with over 100 wheelchair users and member advocates.
United Spinal’s Advocacy program empowers individuals to engage their local and state policymakers by creating a coast-to-coast network of seasoned grassroots advocates to fight for disability rights.
Ian Mackay, Washington State advocate, activist, avid outdoor enthusiast and peer group leader, will be attending United Spinal's Roll on Capitol Hill to speak with legislators on issues that affect the independence and quality of life for people with spinal cord injuries and disorders.
H.R. 620 prevents people with disabilities from immediately going to court to enforce their rights and to press for timely removal of access barriers.
