Living Hope meets with Congresswoman Sylvia Garcia
Since the mid 2000's Rep. Garcia has supported LHWA. On October 5 U.S. Rep. Sylvia Garcia visited our office where we learned what she is working on in Washington DC. She also learned what the needs of people with disabilities are here locally. We shared our experiences during the recent disasters Hurricane Harvey and Tropical storm Imelda.
We learned that Rep. Garcia is working on the passing the Equality Act, raising the minimum wage to $15.00 per hour, passing the Dream Act, and working to better the conditions in detention centers. In the House they have passed over 100 bills and now it's up to the Senate.
