Repost from National Autism Association
Kevin and Avonte’s Law has passed and will help save lives in the autism community and beyond. To all of those through the years who made phone calls, wrote letters, and advocated for police training, wandering prevention programs, and protecting the lives of those with developmental disabilities, we thank you!
We’re incredibly grateful to Senator Chuck Grassley, Senator Chuck Schumer, Senator Amy Klobuchar, Senator Thom Tillis, Congressman Chris Smith, US Congresswoman Maxine Waters for your leadership on this critical piece of legislation. To the staffers who worked nights, weekends, around the clock to get this bill passed, we are so thankful for you!
