New Gopen & Crocker Fellows (MA UCEDD/LEND)

March 4, 2018

The 2018 Gopen Fellow, Ashley Quick, joined ICI in early July. She will spend the year focusing on how to help law enforcement better understand and work with people with disabilities. Ashley will be looking at their training content and interviewing law enforcement officers and other interested parties to help her create new training materials.

Raquel Quezada, the 2018 Crocker Fellow, continues her work at the ICI in this new capacity after having been a 2017 LEND Fellow. Raquel has developed a radio program dedicated to helping the Latina population learn more about disability resources. Her program is heard weekly on La Mega 95.1FM (or 1400AM) each Saturday at 11am, and will be expanding soon. Raquel's focus and programming will continue to spread information about disabilities, programs, opportunities and news.
