Dear staff;

Thank you so much for this invitation today. I am so happy to be a part of this conference.

I believe so much in your work with people with disabilities, and myself have been an Advocate for many years. I too have a disability, and feel our civil rights have come far.

Sincerely,
Deborah

Judy and David are allowing all participants listening to this discussion to better understand the changes taking place in global development and diplomacy efforts. There are new opportunities to advance the efforts of civil society to alleviate poverty and promote human rights. There is a great opportunity to win the future for persons with disabilities both at home and abroad.
