2002: "Stories of Leadership" on the 15th Anniversary of Partners in Policymaking®

Stories of Leadership was published on the 15th anniversary of Partners, and includes some of the most inspiring acts of activism that any human being could hope to attain.

  • Dwight was once a farmer and family man. Then he was the widower and single parent who gave up farming to care for a son with cerebral palsy. And now, there's Dwight the activist.
  • JoAnn recently resigned from her job and started a personal care attendant agency. For now, her only customer is her son Brad, who is in his late twenties. Later, JoAnn plans to hire other attendants and work for other people with disabilities.
  • Claudia believes that Partners in Policymaking® made her confident. So confident that now she can go out into the world and make changes.
  • Sharyl thinks other countries are way ahead of us in terms of valuing children—including children with disabilities.
