Gerald Homme

Joyce welcomes Gerald Homme, chairman of the Bender Lead On Team and two other members of this youth-run advocacy group, Laura Thien, and Staci Foster. They will discuss in depth, the mission of the Bender Lead On Team. Through respect, determination, and unity this team will aid our youth in the advocacy of individuals with disabilities, particularly in the field of employment, anti-bullying, and college support. The group is led by, comprised of, and run by people with disabilities who will break through the adult-filter and become self-advocates and leaders within our communities.
