White House Asks YOU To Suggest Topic and Speakers for Monthly Disability Calls

Red-suggestion-box You Pick the Topic and Speaker for White House Monthly Disability Calls

Please view the below link and text about your opportunity to make suggestions for the topics and speakers on the monthly disability call. You need to go to the link and fill out the form for your suggestion to be considered. Please circulate.

Make your suggestion for the White House disability calls.

Each month, members of the White House Domestic Policy Council and Office of Public Engagement who work on disability issues host a public, live-captioned conference call to keep you better informed of important disability issues and to connect you to the leaders who work on disability policies in the federal government. Over the past several months, these calls have featured discussions on accessibility, employment, education, technology, emergency preparedness, transportation, healthcare and the budget, just to name a few. The Secretaries of Education and Transportation and other senior Administration officials have participated on calls.

We are now offering you the opportunity to suggest the topics discussed on the monthly disability calls and/or the speakers who participate. We want to hear from you. Starting in September and over the next few months, where feasible, these monthly calls will attempt to address issues that you identify as well as schedule speakers from whom you want to hear. Please complete the below form to submit your suggestion. All White House Disability Group calls are off the record and not for press purposes.

Stay tuned to receive emails or check back at Disability.gov for notices about the dates and times of upcoming calls.

We cannot guarantee that your issue will be addressed or that the speakers you recommend will participate.

If you would like to be added to the White House Disability Group email distribution list, please send an email to disability@who.eop.gov with your name, organization, city and state.

Great, I sent in my request.

The Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and its Protocols MUST be ratified by the United States of America as soon as possible.

The number of nations around the world who already have include nations that now stare at America and wonder just why this nation has not and why America is delaying. When you look at the UN ENABLE map of nations that have ratified the Convention there are two nations that stand out very noticeably - America and Russia, where non-ratification of the Convention is concerned.
