Disability Rights (Study Group)

This study group will explore the rights and realities of people with disabilities in the U.S. and abroad. We will read and hear from a diverse group of people, abled and disabled, working on these issues from many different vantage points including activists, attorneys, scholars, UN officials, foundations, people who run institutions and people who are housed in them, as well as policy makers and parents. We will use the Convention for People with Disabilities as well as the first ever World Report on Disability, produced by WHO and the World Bank, to understand why more than a billion people or one is six experience disability.
