Coalition on Race, Ethnicity, Poverty, and Disability
Since 2019, we have worked with the National Disability Institute to convene practitioners in both the financial services and disability services fields, helping to host large-scale convenings, trainings, and work group sessions on the topic of financial stability for people with disabilities.
Goal of Program
To share knowledge of the intersecting issues faced by people of color with disabilities, and to identify program and policy implications with multi-sector partners that equitably lead to greater financial stability.
