Webinar: Disability and Economic Justice

September 22, 2022
1:00 – 2:00 PM ET

In the United States, full and equal participation in society is a fundamental right protected by legislation including the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), yet barriers to economic opportunity persist.. People with disabilities experience unemployment at double the rate of those without a disability, and approximately 26 percent of disabled people live below the poverty line. 

For too long, philanthropy has ignored the ways that existing policies and systems exclude and/or penalize people with disabilities, denying them economic security. This webinar will address why philanthropy cannot meaningfully advance economic justice without incorporating a disability lens.

Join Weingart Foundation President and CEO Miguel A. Santana in an open, honest dialogue with disability advocates. CART will be provided. If you require another accommodation to fully participate in the webinar, please note it in your registration, or contact us at communications@disabilityphilanthropy.org or 407-917-6864. This free webinar is presented by the Disability & Philanthropy Forum.
