#SaludTues Tweetchat 2/23: Advocating for Inclusivity and Equity with People with Disabilities

COVID-19 has highly impacted people with disabilities, especially Latinos and other people of color with disabilities.

Even before COVID-19, many barriers have made life inequitable for people with disabilities, whether in the workplace, classroom, or doctor’s office.

Creating inclusive spaces and policies for people with disabilities will help us reach a more equitable society.
