COVID-19: Advocates ask Gov. Brown to protect the health, safety & independence of 950,000 Oregonians with disabilities

In a letter to Gov. Kate Brown and other state officials yesterday evening, advocates with Disability Rights Oregon, the ACLU of Oregon, FACT Oregon, and the Oregon Self Advocacy Coalition asked the state to take action to meet the needs of Oregonians with disabilities, who are among those at greatest risk during the current public health crisis.

The groups sent detailed recommendations to ensure that people with disabilities have equal access to care and the supports they need to be healthy, safe, and independent.
