These resources will be of interest to readers curious about how presidential candidates are approaching disability issues:

  • Candidate responses to AAPD’s Presidential Candidate Questionnaire, which covers a broad range of topics including civil rights and health care.
  • A Reuters article on Elizabeth Warren’s pledge to end sub-minimum wages if she becomes president.
  • A McKnight article on Cory Booker’s long-term supports plan.
  • This YouTube video of presidential candidates answering a question during a debate about what they would do for disability supports.

ANCOR is co-sponsoring and participating in AAPD’s 2020 Presidential Forum on Disability Issues when it is rescheduled. Originally scheduled for January 13, it has been postponed because of conflicts with the Democratic debate schedule. We will keep members informed as a new date is scheduled.
