Thank you for your leadership on expanding opportunities through the successful implementation of WIOA.
As you know from my previous testimony, my name is Jennifer Mizrahi and I am the President of RespectAbility, a national nonprofit working to enable people with disabilities to achieve the American dream. We know that people with disabilities deserve to have jobs and careers, just like anyone else.
Together with our partners NCIL, Best Buddies, NOD, NACDD, and PVA, we have developed the Employment First Planning Tool, which we shared with you earlier https://www.respectability.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/Disability-Employment-First-Planning.pdf. I urge you to read and share it along with our state-by-state statistics that can help in state performance metric dashboards.
