One Persons Story
Get into politics as if your lives depend on it.
And it does. You can be a soldier of justice.
You can be a revolution of one. Justin

Nick Dupree and His Crusade
  • Aging out of Medicaid16 hours of care to 2 hours
    under the adult program
  • Nursing homeclosest one that could provide his
    needed level of care 195 miles away in LA
  • Challenged by his grandmother, Nick began a two
    year campaign
  • Wrote letters, raised public awareness of the
    situation
  • Worked with state senator to develop and
    introduce legislation to eliminate age limit on
    services
  • When bill defeated, he filed a lawsuit in federal
    court
  • His efforts caught the attention of the folks at
    AIMM who along with their friends, families and
    allies, wrote hundreds of letters to President
    Bush, urging him to take action

Nick The Rest of the Story
  • Days before his 21st birthday, Medicaid waiver
    program for 30 Alabamians approved
  • I want people to think about the larger problem
    here. I plan to keep working on this for the rest
    of my life so that everyone can be safe and can
    be included in the communityand not locked in a
    faraway nursing home awaiting their death.
