our always information-packed and lively monthly meeting. At this month's
meeting, we are honored to welcome Senator Bill Ferguson, who represents
District 46, where the NFB Jernigan Institute is located, and also serves as
the Maryland Senate President. Senator Ferguson will discuss accessibility
and equality in voting as well as accessibility in K-12 education. I urge
everyone to make a special effort to attend this meeting to emphasize our
interest in these critical issues, and I look forward to virtually getting
together with all of you!
