In the days before Nona Narvaez needed to testify at the Minnesota State Capitol in favor of legislation that would require all ambulances to carry emergency epinephrine, her son with severe food allergies was only 3, and her fellow advocates were worried about finding babysitters for their own food-allergic toddlers.

But Narvaez knew what she was doing. She told her team to forget the babysitters and bring their children to St. Paul.

I have to say that the internet and social media have made it easier to become informed and gather like minded individuals together to affect change on a large scale.

As our children age, we find new challenges and fight new battles because our children deserve to be able to go to university or enter the work force without being discriminated against.
