<p>While disability issues have become more mainstream in our culture, we still have a long way to go to achieve full equality &mdash; especially in light of the disproportionate impact both coronavirus and the recession have had on our communities. Join us for a robust discussion on the &ldquo;state of disability rights policy&rdquo; with nonprofit and congressional leaders in the field of disability policy. Featured speakers include Senator Bob Casey (D-PA);&nbsp;Representative Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA);&nbsp;Valerie Williams, Director of Government Relations, National Association of State Directors of Special Education;&nbsp;Donna Meltzer, CEO, National Association of Developmental Disabilities Councils; Curt Decker, Executive Director, National Disability Rights Network; and Rabbi Jonah Dov Pesner, Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism.</p>
