Sonia Gonzales is from Donna. “The reason I want to participate in Texas Partners in Policymaking is because the area we live in is underserved and people are unaware of children’s rights and entitlements,” said Gonzales. “I want to learn everything I possibly can so I can advocate for my daughter and help others who are going through their own trials.”
Raising Awareness About Disability Resources in the Rio Grande Valley
Raise awareness in the Rio Grande Valley regarding the needs of families of individuals with disabilities. Many families in the Rio Grande Valley are underserved due to language barriers or because they are not aware of their rights in education. The partner will connect with community organizations, school districts, and families to hold workshops on relevant topics and offer one-on-one assistance to parents.
