On March 24 and March 25, more than 1,500 individuals participated in two listening sessions, hosted by National Disability Institute (NDI), to learn about the impact of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) crisis on the disability community. Attendees heard from people with disabilities; nonprofit service providers; and federal leaders from the Departments of Education, Health and Human Services and Labor.
Recordings of these sessions are posted below. You can read a Summary of Takeaways and view Polling Results from the sessions that provide insights on the impact of COVID-19 on the disability community. Following the Listening Sessions, over 600 individuals responded to an online survey that provided additional information about pressing concerns of the disability population during the pandemic.
