Ruth Lowenkron, director of Disability Justice at NYLPI, was featured in a story alongside quotes from Daniel’s Law co-sponsors New York State Senator Samra Brouk and Joe Prude, Daniel Prude’s brother.

“It’s a real exciting opportunity to ensure that Daniel’s Law will be passed and to ensure that legislators understand what a great concept Daniel’s Law is, because they will have an opportunity before they sign on the dotted line before they pass it—before they vote on it—to see how it would work in New York,” she said. “Because it’s based on programs that really work, in large part on CAHOOTS, we’re very confident it will succeed… We are getting the sense from discussions at the task force that the elected officials and the legislators appreciate seeing what it would look like here in our neck of the woods.” – Ruth Lowenkron
