ENSURING WE ALL FLOURISH.

Join people from across North America as we come together, virtually, from diverse backgrounds and viewpoints to harness our collective power in breaking down the barriers to fully inclusive and flourishing Jewish communities.

Together, we will help advance policies and empower millions of people with disabilities to lead more independent and fulfilling lives while fully and meaningfully participating in their communities.

The Program

February 28, 2024

1-2:30 pm EST

  • Listen to community members living with disabilities as they share the challenges they face – and what support 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 national legislation that will help millions of people with disabilities flourish.

  • Advocate for the policies that make an impact in real-time. Together we’ll work towards Improving economic security for people will disabilities and helping lift them out of poverty through the Bipartisan SSI Savings Penalty Elimination Act (S 2767 H.R 5408).
