The Georgia Chapter is led by advocates Kisha Smith and Candice Aaron. Ms. Smith and Ms. Aaron are also founding members of the Changing Spaces Campaign in the United States. They were inspired to start this advocacy because of their own struggles to care for their sons while away from home.
Both women are mothers to sons who have a disability, and have the need for accessible changing spaces.
Both advocates were among those chosen as 2019 Advocates of the Year by Service Provider’s Association for Developmental Disabilities (SPADD) for their work with the Changing Spaces Campaign.
Advocacy in Georgia
Ms. Smith and Ms. Aaron have worked with their representatives to introduce two bills & a resolution in Georgia. Unfortunately, neither passed. They continue to advocate on a local, state, and federal level, with plans to pursue sponsorship of a new bill.
