On Thursday, February 6, disability advocates from across the country converged on Capitol Hill for the fourth annual Jewish Disability Advocacy Day. The event was convened by the Jewish Disability Network, a network of national Jewish organizations engaging in advocacy on disability issues, co-chaired by The Jewish Federations of North America and the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism.

Over the course of the day, participants were briefed on key topics by  Allison Wohl, Executive Director of the Collaboration to Promote Self-Determination, who discussed the Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) Act, and David Morrissey, executive director of the US International Council on Disabilities, who presented on the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (Disabilities Treaty).

During the afternoon, advocates met with their legislators to discuss these important issues.
