AAPD-CCD letter to Secretary-Designate Becerra with disability health care priorities following up on disability groups' meeting
Thank you for meeting with our organizations to discuss the disability community’s priorities for the Biden Administration. Our nation is currently home to more than 61 million people with disabilities, and this number grows every day. The disability community is incredibly diverse in both identity and experience. Disability is most prevalent in women and in Black, Indigenous, and people of color.
