COVID-19 and Disability Rights

All the information you need to protect your rights during the COVID-19 pandemic, and stay informed about disability rights issues.

The work of protecting and advocating for people with disabilities is more important than ever. Many of the issues you already faced have become magnified as the state creates policies and our communities respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.
