History of Unlock the Waiting Lists!

Inspired by a sense of solidarity found at a rally of a few hundred advocates at the Georgia Capitol in March of 1998, a few advocates decided to attend the “A Key of Our Own” conference training in New Orleans to hear about a growing national movement to shine light on the challenge of waiting lists for aging and disability supports. Some of the original delegates included Grace Covington-Fricks  (UAP, TFCC), Sarita Reddy  (UAP, Advocacy Alliance, Parent), Andrew Hales (Georgia Council on Aging), Catherine Stefanavage  (Advocacy Alliance, Parent), Mark Johnson (Shepherd, Independent Living networks)  Beth Tumlin, (Georgia ARC Network, People First, AA, Parent), and Carol Jones (attendant and Shepherd Center).
