“Because of Partners in Policymaking, my son now has a mom who is more aware of what I can do to be a better advocate for him … he’s going to have a better opportunity to do everything that he wants to do in life.”
—Heather Pike

“There's just so much you learn in such a short time, it's like a crash course in parenting and advocacy all in one, and it really did change my life.” —Traci Castles

“I've advocated for myself for quite some time, but I didn't realize when I got into Partners that the system is a dynamic creature and it is subject to change at all times. And that some of the stuff I thought I knew, I really didn't.
—Will Watkins

“My speakers, my classmates, the material, all of it was great. I couldn't have asked for anything better. I not only gained friends, but I gained an alliance, basically, that I know if I need something, I've got someone I can call on.”
—Tracy Mittasch
