We are set for our 1st chaperone Margaret's Missions trip since COVID. These No Sugar Baker peanut butter bacon cookies are my favorite along with the joy of seeing individuals w/disabilities travel independently. Our nonprofit named after my mom.https://nosugarbaker.com/baked-goods/no-sugar-bakers-peanut-butter-bacon-chocolate-chip-cookies
You might not know but The Hubs & I formed a nonprofit chaperoned travel group for individuals with disabilities Margaret's Missions. One of our biggest challenges is meal time. This is bravo. Peer to peer learning while striving for independent living ++++ healthy eating.
Our participants from the Community Program recently traveled to Savannah, Georgia to soak up some southern sun in partnership with Margaret's Missions. On the trip, participants learned the history of the city through a trolley tour, riverboat cruise, and haunted ghost tour. They enjoyed preparing a four course meal with Chef Darin and visiting Savannah's very own candy store. So much fun was jammed into a small amount of time! #fun #vacation #savannah #friends

Families Fight To Change Law That Keeps People With Down Syndrome Off Organ Donor List Parents in Minnesota and Wisconsin are pushing for equal treatment for their kids. Currently people with certain disabilities like Down syndrome can be denied an organ transplant due to outdated laws.

Nondiscrimination in Organ Transplantation Laws & Toolkit - NDSS 05/01/2021

Nondiscrimination in Organ Transplantation Laws & Toolkit - NDSS

The National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS), the leading human rights organization for all individuals with Down syndrome, applauds the introduction of the Charlotte Woodward Organ Transplant Discrimination Prevention Act to uphold the rights of qualified organ transplant candidates who have a disability.

Introduced by Congresswoman Jaime Herrera Beutler (R-WA) and Katie Porter (D-CA), the Charlotte Woodward Organ Transplant Discrimination Prevention Act prohibits discrimination against individuals based on their disability when seeking an organ transplant. This legislation would uphold and enforce rights established in the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.



“Despite federal protections, people with physical and intellectual disabilities are barred from receiving a life-saving organ in many states. This discrimination is a violation of their basic human rights,” said NDSS Director of Government Relations Ashley Helsing. “Passage of the Charlotte Woodward Organ Transplant Discrimination Prevention Act will save countless lives of people in dire need of transplants.”



If passed, the Charlotte Woodward Organ Transplant Discrimination Prevention Act will ensure that a person’s capacity to comply with post-transplant treatment requirements is not a significant reason to deny them a transplant procedure. Furthermore, this bill requires that health care providers make policies, practices and procedures accessible to qualified recipients with disabilities.



The bill is named for Charlotte Woodward, an advocate with Down syndrome and member of the NDSS staff who received a life-saving heart transplant nearly nine years ago. Since then, she has advocated tirelessly to ensure others with Down syndrome and other disabilities have the same access to transplants.



“As one of the very few people in the world with Down syndrome who has had the opportunity to receive a life-saving heart transplant, I am so very, very grateful that people with disabilities will have the same opportunity as I in the future,” said Charlotte Woodward, for whom the bill is named. “In the past, too many precious lives were lost due to discrimination in organ transplantation. I am so very, very thankful for the generosity of my heart donor and that of her loving family. Her gift has allowed me to live my life to the fullest and to go on to advocate for others to be able to do the same. The passage of this bill will be a monumental step towards a more just world, and I am proud to play a part in it.”



“There are misconceptions that people with disabilities can’t manage the treatment needed after an organ transplant or wouldn’t benefit from such an operation – and those claims are simply not true,” Herrera Beutler said. “Charlotte Woodward is a wonderful woman with Down syndrome who is also the namesake for this legislative solution. Charlotte has been sharing her experience of successfully receiving and managing a heart transplant in order to put an end to this discrimination and help more people receive the life-saving gift of organ donation. I’m proud to introduce legislation with my colleague, Rep. Katie Porter, to ensure that people with disabilities aren’t turned away when they’re in need of life-saving organ transplant.”

State-level legislation enforcing non-discrimination policies for organ transplants has been passed in thirteen states, including California, New Jersey, Maryland, Massachusetts, Oregon, Delaware, Kansas, Ohio, Louisiana, Indiana, Virginia, Iowa and Missouri. This federal legislation would reinforce rights protected under the Americans with Disabilities Act and end-organ transplant discrimination across the country.



NDSS has resources available to assist those willing to support non-discrimination in organ transplantation for people with disabilities.

Great book! I'm glued to "Riding the Bus With My Sister." I ♥️"focus on her abilities vs. always saying what she can't do/disabilities" when Rachel, the older sister, advocates to getting a job for her sister with developmental disabilities. Book hits home. Real life inclusion. Pick it up!! Riding The Bus With My Sister
