Jewish Disability Advocacy Day

Join us for JDAD as we come together virtually from diverse communities across North America to harness our collective power and break down barriers to opportunity and inclusion. Help us advance policies that will empower millions of individuals with disabilities to lead more independent and fulfilling lives. Together, we’ll learn, take action, and be inspired!
