Description of Fellowship
Leah spent the summer in the Mayor’s Commission on Disabilities, designing and launching a survey on accessibility priorities for city residents with disabilities. Leah worked with the Chief of Staff and Commissioner to design and refine questions and then created an online survey and designed an outreach plan to reach underserved residents with disabilities. Leah launched the survey at the city’s Annual Americans with Disabilities Act Day. Leah also attended Disability Commission Board meetings and interfaced with constituents in need of commission services.
