Black Disabled Lives Matter: Including the Disability Community in our Fight Against Police Brutality and Systemic Racism

Today, too many people with disabilities still face significant challenges accessing the supports, services, and accommodations they need to live their daily lives. These challenges disproportionately impact Black people with disabilities, as well as other people of color with disabilities.

We have a lot of work to do when it comes to eliminating barriers to employment for people with disabilities, ensuring people with disabilities have access to affordable health care, and guaranteeing that people with disabilities have the right to live independently. Sadly, even thirty years after the ADA became law, we must work to better enforce its protections.
