Iowa Mom of Daughter with Disability Urges Senators Grassley and Harkin to Confirm Perez

Julie Beckett, the mother of a daughter with a disability that recently passed away, wrote a powerful letter in the Cedar Rapids Gazette urging Senators Grassley and Harkin to confirm Tom Perez to be the next Secretary of Labor.

From the letter, “I want to see people like my daughter Katie, people who might have a disability but want to live and work in the community, get an opportunity to pursue the American dream. That’s why I am supporting Perez’s confirmation to be the next Secretary of Labor, and that is why I am urging Senators Chuck Grassley and Tom Harkin of Iowa to swiftly approve his nomination.”
