*Please Note: The livestream will begin on this page at the time of the event.
Join us on Tuesday, April 18, from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM ET as The Century Foundation celebrates the one-year anniversary of the Disability Economic Justice Collaborative—a first-of-its-kind initiative that brings together more than forty leading disability rights and justice organizations, think tanks, and top research and policy organizations committed to finally achieving economic security and justice for people with disabilities in the United States.
We will celebrate the Collaborative’s year one accomplishments as we look ahead to continuing the fight to breaking the persistent link between disability and poverty in the United States; breaking down the systemic barriers to economic security and justice that are the “unfinished business” of the ADA; and understanding how race, gender, LGBTQIA+ status, and other identities intersect in the lives of disabled people.
Live CART and ASL interpretation will be provided.
