NPW Disabilities Roundtable
The NPW Disabilities Roundtable was established in response to concerns expressed by member organizations related to common needs and opportunities as we began to emerge from COVID-19. The Disabilities Roundtable develops short-term and long-term strategies to advance and/or strengthen shared advocacy issues, and collaborates to support programming and initiatives that support access and opportunity for people with disabilities, across the spectrum of physical, intellectual, developmental and cognitive disabilities.
