According to the CDC, 90% of the people hospitalized from the COVID-19 pandemic have underlying conditions – i.e. people with disabilities. Therefore, RespectAbility is on the front lines of the media and policy war to protect people with disabilities during the COVID-19 and related economic crisis. We get journalists, leaders and stakeholders the facts and sources they need so that policy makers and the public understand both the stakes and solutions to solving this shared crisis. We also are deeply committed to disability leadership and civic engagement. Join us in learning more about COVID-19, how it is impacting the disability community, what RespectAbility is doing about it, and how together we can create a better future!
