My name is Hope Drummond. I am a longtime advocate for people with disabilities on a range of fronts. As an individual of short stature with multiple disabilities, I have first-hand experience with navigating through institutions that are not designed to include me as an active participant. In my professional life, I have assisted clients with disAbilities transition into the workforce, sort out benefits and insurance issues, and become more independent. I have served on the youth advisory board of Healthy Futures at Life Coalition in Mississippi and the board of the My Voice My Choice Project under the Arc of Mississippi Organization. I am a powerful advocate, who has engaged extensively in the public arena on behalf of individuals with disabilities and has increased awareness of disability issues. I am currently working for the Alliance of People with disAbilities as a Program Manager. In 2012 I started a Project/Support Team called Parents with this-Abilities. I travel all over King County to bring awareness regarding the rights of disabled parents. Many organization has supported me in my quest to bring awareness, Organization like Alliance of People with disAbilities, ARC of King County, Disability Rights WA, etc just to name a few…Thank you .
