Fighting for Disability Rights

 

End discriminatory minimum wage loophole against disabled workers. 
As a campaign we support universal healthcare that supports folks with disabilities. We are against any form of discrimination against disabled folks. My son was born at 27 weeks gestation and I fully understand the financial burdens placed on families. I understand the issues with Medicaid as I have personally been involved. We need a universal healthcare system for all and continued improvement to the persons with disabilities act. Our proposed universal health care system supports all necessary services including occupational therapy, speech therapy, housing, employment services, mental health services, and assistive technologies being fully covered.
