After an amazing day advocating for Gracie's Law and an end to organ transplant discrimination against people with a diagnosed developmental disability, Gracie's Law was dropped on the floor at the State Capitol and officially has a House Bill - HB 842!
Learn more about Gracie's Law and the Nobles family that is pioneering this law in Georgia. DSAA will update soon with further action items to take to support this bill.
