Kelsey Mishkin, Representative Raul Grijalva (D-AZ)
Katie Brown, Representative Glenn Thompson (R-PA)
During ATAP’s 2018 Annual Conference, ATAP was honored to give two annual awards to Kelsey Mishkin, Legislative Director for Representative Raul Grijalva, and Katie Brown, former Legislative Assistant for Representative Glenn Thompson. Both Mishkin and Brown spearheaded the Dear Colleague letter for the Assistive Technology Act. With their help, both of their respective bosses supported standing up a Dear Colleague letter and they worked to collect signatures from other Representatives during the appropriations season. ATAP is grateful for their efforts to organize the Dear Colleague letter for this helps protect the federal investment for the Assistive Technology Act.
