Effective Advocacy for Inclusive Policy
“Disability rights are civil rights” is a unifying rallying call. Just as the fight for Jewish equality could not be fought by Jews alone, the drive for disability rights must be waged in coalition. Disability rights champions in Congress and in civil society will talk about strategies to cultivate new allies and reach across communities, movements and sectors – all of which have a stake in our success. Featured speakers include Alison Barkoff, Principal Deputy Administrator and Acting Administrator and Assistant Secretary for Aging, Administration for Community Living; Senator Maggie Hassan (D-NH); Representatives John Katko (R-NY), Lisa Blunt Rochester (D-DE), Pete Sessions (R-TX); Lee Smith; Barbara Weinstein, Director, Commission on Social Action of Reform Judaism, Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism; Eric Fingerhut, President &CEO, The Jewish Federations of North America, and Aaron Kaufman, Senior Manager, Legislative Affairs, The Jewish Federations of North America.
