Our first episode is all about legislative advocacy as a student, just in time for Washington Seminar and exciting legislative efforts relevant to blind students,, such as AIMHigh.

Episode Description: Advocacy for legislation is a driving force in enacting powerful change and equality for all those who are blind. With Washington Seminar quickly approaching, students Kenia Flores and Justin salisbury share their thoughts on the importance of advocating for legislation as a student. We know that this may seem daunting at first, but we offer some tips for students who wish to gain more experience. Lieutenant Governor Josh Green of Hawaii offers helpful information about the legislative process from the viewpoint of someone in political office, as well.

We would like to thank special guests Kenia Flores, Justin Salisbury, and Lieutenant Governor Josh Green of Hawaii.
