UCP Seguin says THANK YOU to ABC7 Chicago Reporter Karen Meyer, a tireless advocate for persons with disability and a dear friend to UCP Seguin, who is retiring. Karen has been a trailblazer as a profoundly deaf television reporter who has reported on and advocated for persons with disabilities for over 20 years at ABC7. We have been fortunate that she has brought our message among others to the general public's attention. We'll miss you Karen Meyer--happy retirement.
