61 Million Americans Live with Disabilities.

Nearly 26% live in poverty.

YOU CAN HELP TO CHANGE THAT.

Join us to kickoff JDAD as we come together virtually from diverse communities across North America to harness our collective power and break down barriers to opportunity and inclusion. Help advance policies that will empower millions of individuals with disabilities to lead more independent and fulfilling lives. Together we’ll learn and take action!

Jewish Disability Advocacy Day

Making Change: Kickoff Event

Wednesday, Feb. 15th

12 pm EST

  • Listen to community members living with disabilities who share the challenges they face – and what supports they need to overcome them.

  • Learn what Jewish Federations, Jewish human service agencies, and others are doing to improve the daily lives of people living with disabilities.

  • Hear from leading Members of Congress, disability advocacy champions, changemakers, and experts who will help us better understand the remaining obstacles to inclusion and about national legislation that will help millions of people with disabilities flourish.

  • Get the tools to advocate for these policies in real-time. We’ll take concrete action at this event – individually yet together.

  • And more.
