What You Are Doing

2016 Hasbro Community Action Hero Paloma Rabana, who is legally blind, recognized a critical gap in services for visually impaired 6-13 year olds in Florida. She led two rallies at the Capitol, wrote an Op-Ed and lobbied the Florida legislature, including Governor Rick Scott. The Florida legislature approved the Children's Program for Florida's blind and visually impaired 6-13 year olds, providing $1.25 million with $500,000 recurring annually.

 
Why it matters!
Paloma wanted policymakers to support and provide necessary services to blind or visually-impaired youth. You can do the same by educating and partnering with lawmakers and community organizations to make changes to issues important to you!
