NABS Personal Testimony Letters

Update from co-chair of NABS Legislative Advocacy: Kenia Flores

The National Association of blind students Legislative Advocacy Committee is
asking that each student division collect five personal testimonies before
Washington Seminar. These testimonies can highlight either positive or
negative experiences. I have attached a template and two examples of what a
great testimony looks like. You can email your testimony to me at
kenia.flores at furman.edu <mailto:kenia.flores at furman.edu>
