New Report on The State of Disability Policy in the United States

The National Council on Disability released Strength in Our Differences, its annual disability policy report on the state of disability policy in the United States. The report is organized into four major issue areas: ratification of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), economic empowerment, health care and access to medical treatment, and community integration. The report includes a number of recommendations designed to address barriers to inclusion and full participation in society for the President and Congress to consider.
