About Warriors 4 Epilepsy
Warriors 4 Epilepsy was birthed out of the compassion and the need for servicing all persons with Epilepsy who have been fired, shunned, banned from churches and other public places, and bullied relentlessly - treatments that have also led to the mistreatment of persons who live with this disorder. These are the 65 million who are faced with so many barriers, immeasurable stress, and education has been one of them. This group has become very vulnerable to being excluded. The Warriors 4 Epilepsy will continue to seek to level the playing field for Americans with disabilities and to ensure inclusivity. It is their mission to reshape attitudes and eliminate stereotypes. This begins with strengthening enforcement of the Americans with Disabilities Amendments Act, increasing enforcement by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and striving for parity in insurance coverage for Persons with all disabilities and those with mental health issues.
