DRIVING CHANGE AND PROTECTING THE RIGHTS OF INDIVIDUALS WITH DISABILITIES
Tell the 117th Congress: Include Disability Community in COVID-19 Relief Bills!
Congress once again passed coronavirus pandemic relief legislation that left out people with disabilities and those who support them! The critical needs of people with disabilities, their families, and the direct support professional (DSP) workforce must be included in the first coronavirus relief bill of the new Congress – we cannot be left behind.
