I spent the evening of September 17th at the monthly meeting of the South Bay/Harbor Area chapter of People First. People First is a self-determination group by and for individuals with disabilities. During the meeting, I provided a legislative update regarding the issues that participants stated were most important to them. We had an engaging conversation about affordable housing, refinery safety, the state’s support of the Harbor Regional Center, and public safety. I enjoyed meeting everyone and was grateful for the opportunity to exchange ideas and information.
