Daniel Charney is a rising fourth-year student at the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, Washington, working toward a bachelor’s degree in politics/government and communications. Danny’s work in advocacy spreads far, supporting organizations such as GLSEN, a national LGBTQ nonprofit that works with students across the country in promoting respect and kindness in school. Through his coursework at Puget Sound, he became increasingly interested in advancing self-advocacy and accessibility for students with learning disabilities. In the summer of 2021, he joined forces with the American Association of People With Disabilities and United States Senator Patty Murray’s office to intern in her Washington, DC, office, working to advance legislation that improves the lives of people with disabilities. He is thrilled to get the opportunity with the Young Adults Leadership Council to advocate for the 1 in 5 students with learning disabilities.
