In this webinar, learn about the barriers marginalized families face, the historical and systemic factors that contribute to them, and the long-term implications.
Historically marginalized populations have experienced and continue to experience discrimination by medical professionals, including pervasive negative biases and inaccurate assumptions about their value, quality of life, capacity to communicate and make decisions, and likelihood of survival. Scarce resources during COVID-19 have exacerbated these biases when deciding who receives treatment. This guide provides an explanation of these “crisis standards of care” and recommended strategies to ensure the non-discriminatory application of crisis standard of care guidelines.
Our system of disability services and supports has come a long way, but many people with disabilities and their families still struggle to access what they need to live a quality life in the community. This webinar discusses new legislation that would provide real solutions to problems that have persisted for decades, and how you can help it move forward.
Hear from National experts on the Medicaid Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) funding included in the American Rescue Plan Act.
Many chapters nationwide offer pooled special needs trusts to help people with disabilities pay for the things they need in their life while protecting their public benefits. This database can help you find a chapter of The Arc near you that runs a trust.
