What We Need - Thelma Greene

April 30, 2020

My name is Thelma Greene. I live in Washington, DC in my own apartment. I have a disability and use a motorized wheelchair for mobility. I am a member of Project Action! -an advocacy group in DC, and a member of numerous boards and committees. I like to stay involved in my community and on the go. However, since the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing, I am confined to my home. This is not easy and I am trying to keep busy with activities at home, like adult coloring books and puzzles, especially because I don't want to watch TV all day. I can't get to the grocery store, so my mother or my aide (who comes 8 hours a day) go for me.
