I worked with Protection and Advocacy Agency as an advocate for developmentally disabled individuals.
I spent 6 months as the patient advocate in Kaulapapa, the Hansen's Disease Settlement on the island of Molokai, probably the most wonderful 6 months of my 40 years here in Hawaii. Too bad that Reagan discontinued the project after only 6 months.
I was also the Hawaii representative to the 15 year VISTA celebration in Washington. What a treat!
