The National Disability Institute (NDI) recently conducted two listening sessions to learn about the impact of the Coronavirus crisis on the disability community (people with disabilities, family members, nonprofit service providers and public agency directors).
At those sessions, Senator Robert Casey’s staff and federal leaders from the Departments of Education, Health and Human Services and Labor shared what Congress and federal agencies are doing to respond to the disability community’s needs, as they understand them.
NDI shares what they learned from the listening sessions:
- Summary of takeaways from presenters and audience.
- Polling results that provide additional insights on the impact on the disability community.
- Recordings from both listening sessions.
