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

In the past four years, the disability community has felt the full weight of the Trump Presidency. This community has battled against threats to health care, threats to their education, and threats to their lives. Joe Biden has always known that everyone in this country deserves to be treated with dignity and should have a fair shot at getting ahead—and that includes the 61 million Americans (one in four adults) who have a disability. Joe recognizes that we need to view all policies—ranging from climate change and the economy to education and housing—through an inclusive lens. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will:

  • Ensure full inclusion of people with disabilities in policy development and aggressively enforce the civil rights of people with disabilities.
  • Guarantee access to high-quality, affordable health care, including mental health care.
  • Expand competitive, integrated employment opportunities for people with disabilities.
  • Protect and Strengthen Economic Security for People with Disabilities.
  • Ensure that students with disabilities have access to educational programs and support they need to succeed.
  • Expand Access to Accessible, Integrated, and Affordable Housing, Transportation, and Assistive Technologies and Protect People with Disabilities in Emergencies.
  • Support People with Disabilities during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
