This webinar will review new legislation, crafted by inclusive disability disaster advocates with U.S. Senate leaders, led by Sen. Bob Casey (D-PA). The legislation focuses on analyzing the responses to disasters of the past five years and determining how best to include individuals with disabilities and those who are aging in the preparation, response, and recovery process from the start. Protection of civil rights and ensuring the voices of on-the-ground stakeholders are key components of the legislation.
- Learn the background of the new legislation and its goals.
