National Leadership Program, 2013-2014
Garrett Patterson is a 2013 Political Science Graduate of St. Edwards University in Austin, Texas. Prior to his arrival at RespectAbility, he worked for a marketing company and had been an intern for Congressman Lloyd Doggett. Patterson was thrilled to be a part of RespectAbility and our movement: Helping Americans with Disabilities Achieve the American Dream. He coordinated many of the office projects, including fundraising, press and initiatives to meet with governors in 2014. Although RespectAbility introduced him to the complexities of disability policy, Patterson hopes to continue contributing to the field by focusing on employment discrimination while in law school.
