Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
Cooked and delivered a meal for a family of four. This family had a new baby three weeks ago. Mother became ill after delivery and remained in the hospital for ten days. The meal needed to follow strict nutritional and allergy guidelines. I also volunteer on the Human Rights Committee for The Arc.
Why are you participating?: 

I believe that you are a person first who then has a disability and or diagnoses. Your disability does not define you. You define yourself.

I volunteer to the Epilepsy Foundation on a yearly basis.
Why are you participating?: 

I wear a lot of different shirts, like the one I'm wearing in my picture, because people like to judge and they like to guess without meeting me. I wear it, so they know I am unashamed and although I am not my Label, I am strong in who I am.

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I've worked and volunteered for multiple social service agencies committed to social justice, empowerment, and improving the quality of life for marginalized peoples. I am also a grad student who is studying to one day operate a social service agency like those I have worked for.
Why are you participating?: 

I am participating because I understand the damaging affects of labeling one another has on our community. These labels are devised in order to separate us and keep us from reaching social equity.

Tell Us Your Good Deed: 
I am a geriatric social worker and have dedicated my life to helping others at the end of their lives. I love helping people to have a good and dignified death. I have recently become a fierce advocate for LGBT elders and am fighting to raise awareness on the needs of this underserved population.
Why are you participating?: 

Because often times people with tattoos are labeled as hoodlums or are judged for the expression we wear on our bodies. I am tattooed and employed and I am a fabulous social worker! I am passionate about what I do and my tattoos do not limit me or make me any less of a fierce advocate.
