Each month BPDD features a different leader in Wisconsin living with a disability. “What’s the Word?” is an opportunity to hear directly from self-advocates about what’s important to them. This month’s column comes from Jamal Lampkin, a self-advocate from Milwaukee who is a Youth Leadership Forum graduate and helped advocate for the Family Navigators Bill by testifying in front of the Wisconsin Senate!

If you or somebody you know would like to be featured in “What’s the Word?” contact Jeremy at jeremy.gundlach@wisconsin.gov.
