Disability Inequity

What Inequities Do People with Disabilities Face? Share Your Thoughts!

The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy is asking the public for feedback to understand the full scope of inequities faced by people with disability and the gaps in current knowledge. This feedback will support the government in making data-informed policy decisions to advance equity in all areas—including health, employment, education and others—for people with disabilities. We encourage everyone in the disability community to respond to this request for information. Learn more and submit your comments here by July 15, 2024.
