Assemblymember Gray Commemorates Limb Loss Awareness Month at the State Capitol

Watch Now:

I was happy and honored to be invited to support ACR 56 on the State Capitol. As an advocate for amputees, I try to support efforts that will help amputees and those affected by limb loss. I appreciate Mr. Gray for this effort and I hope you all will support this as it makes it way through the system.  

Earlier this week, I presented ACR 56 on the Assembly Floor, which recognizes the month of April as Limb Loss Awareness Month. The resolution recognizes the more-than 2 million individuals in the U.S. living with limb loss and limb difference. Diabetes, peripheral artery disease, and trauma are leading causes of limb loss, and they are also prevalent issues that impact individuals in the 21st Assembly District.

It is associated with the concepts of self-fulling prophecy. Labeling theory holds that deviance is not inherent in an act, but instead focuses on the tendency of majorities to negatively label minorities or those seen as deviant from standard cultural norms.
