The Wyoming Institute for Disabilities is launching a five-year strategic plan to advocate for better policies for the disabled in Wyoming. Andy Imparato is a lawyer and the executive director of the Association of University Centers on Disabilities.

He recently visited the University of Wyoming to help kick off this initiative and discuss the benefits of grassroots advocacy. He spoke with Wyoming Public Radio’s Caroline Ballard about why having real people tell their stories to policymakers results in better laws.
