Over the past year, the United States has seen growing inequalities and one of the biggest increases in disability rates due to the pandemic. Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) and a panel of cross-movement organizers and policy experts discuss the next steps policymakers need to take to permanently strengthen the Americans with Disabilities Act and ensure people with disabilities have access to care and the supports they need.
