Capitol Hill Day

By Mary-Ellen Powers

I was very honored to represent Special Olympics Rhode Island at Capitol Hill Day this week! I had four successful meetings with our state's congressmen and senators. I spoke with them about the importance of acceptance and inclusion, and asked them to co-sponsor the Eunice Kennedy Shriver Act. It was a very fun experience!
