In Memoriam – Peter Fleming
Peter Fleming, Vice Chair and Policy Committee Co-Chair of the NH Council for Developmental Disabilities; member of
Self Advocates Leading Together; Advocate NH; Knights of Columbus; Best Buddies International; Special Olympics athlete, coach, and board member; and founding member of the NH Chapter of Best Buddies, passed away on April 20, 2020. Peter spent much of his life representing the disability community and making friends throughout New Hampshire and the United States. Peter’s lifelong dedication to advocacy and his passion for mentoring others was a gift to our community. He leaves behind many family members, friends, teammates, and colleagues.
We will miss him greatly.
Welcome to the recently renamed and redesigned Disability RAPP. The themes explored in each issue, like this issues’ focus on the 30th Anniversary of the ADA, inform us and empower us to break barriers and challenge traditional ideas of what it means to live with a disability. We updated the Disability RAPP design to be more accessible in both its print and digital formats.
DRC-NH, in collaboration with the UNH Institute on Disability and the New Hampshire Council on Developmental Disabilities, distribute a quarterly RAP sheet to educate community members and policy makers about the latest research, policy, practice, and advocacy issues affecting individuals with disabilities and their families.
