Disability Coalition for Biden

Join Us

Joe Biden believes that everyone should be treated with dignity and have a fair shot at getting ahead. This year, on July 26, we celebrated  the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Thanks to the leadership of people with disabilities, disability advocates, and their allies, we have made progress towards the goals of this law—“equality of opportunity, full participation, independent living, and economic self-sufficiency” for people with disabilities. But, there is much more work to do in order to ensure that all people with disabilities are able to participate fully in our communities and enjoy the same kinds of choices and opportunities that many Americans take for granted. Joe will work with the disability community to build a stronger, more expansive middle class so that everyone—regardless of race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, or disability—can find a place. That means amending our laws, policies, and culture to ensure full inclusion of the 61 million individuals with disabilities in the United States in all parts of our society.

Bold Ideas

The Biden Plan for Full Participation and Equality for People with Disabilities

Joe has laid out a comprehensive disability plan to meet goals in seven major areas:

  • Fully include people with disabilities in policy development – creating a senior White House position dedicated to disability engagement and policy coordination.
  • Guarantee access to high-quality, affordable health care, including mental health care; and make sure that medical debt can never bankrupt any family.
  • Eliminate employment barriers, phasing out the subminimum wage for disabled workers.
  • Get students with disabilities the education they need to succeed – investing in early interventions and accessible child care, to support kids from birth; fully funding the IDEA; and supporting disabled students’ transition from high school to college and employment.
  • Boost economic security for people with disabilities – strengthening Supplemental Security Income (SSI) for people with no work history, and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) for any worker who becomes disabled.
  • Invest in affordable, integrated and accessible housing, transportation, and assistive technologies; and protect people with disabilities in emergencies.
  • Advance global disability rights, promoting human rights and inclusion through diplomacy and economic assistance.
