as suggested by Shameka Andrews

 

Right of the week by Marilyn Stata, DDSO Rights Advocate:

The right this week is Freedom from Discrimination I am choosing this right to show that People who have developmental disabilities can be discriminated by the general public. No matter how we become more involved with society.
