DISABILITY JUSTICE

As Councilmember, I will:

 

  • Fight for greater access to housing, food delivery, and transportation.

  • Back NYC ID cards that include a “Person with Disability” or “PWD” identification.

  • Champion subsidies for low-income persons with disabilities to pay for improvements to their homes. 

  • Advocate for Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) type of funding support for organizations and developers to remove architectural barriers from the homes of New York City residents who have disabilities. 

  • Expand Health insurance outreach and enrollment programs to ensure that people with disabilities have access to programs such as GetCoveredNYC. 

  • Push for disabled visitors to have free entry or pay as you wish entry to all 34  Cultural Institutions Group plus free admission for the caregiver.

  • Support discounted entry and memberships to all private cultural institutions/ businesses (caregiver-free). And, clear any conspicuous posting, promotion, and marketing of those policies at all boxes offices, websites and included in any promotional and outreach campaigns.
