Blind and Visually Impaired Students ProtestIn Rhode Island, blind and visually impaired students protested in front of the House Chambers at the Veterans Memorial Auditorium, calling for a permanent line item in the state budget to aid services for blind students. The rally came about after the Department of Education pulled a $684,000 federal grant from the Paul V. Sherlock Center on Disabilities.
“This decision impacts students like myself and students in this crowd today. You have the power to fix it, please use it,” Jackson Troxell said.
