Last night, the Center for Disability and Elder Law presented Congresswoman Robin Kelly with its 2018 Impact Award for her advocacy on behalf of the legal rights of low-income seniors and people with disabilities in the Chicagoland region.
“It’s an honor to be recognized by this remarkable organization for my efforts to support and defend our most vulnerable populations in the Chicagoland area and across the country,” said Rep. Kelly, who accepted the honor during the Center’s Winter Awards Benefit. “In this era where the rights of and resources for seniors and people living with disabilities are being undermined, I’m committed to defending benefits provided to seniors through the Affordable Care Act and protecting the Americans with Disabilities Act from this Administration’s attacks.”
For nearly 34 years, the Center for Disability and Elder Law has provided quality pro bono legal services to low-income seniors and people with disabilities in Cook County.
