Jewish Disability Awareness and Inclusion Month Event - Inclusion Taskforce Panel

Sunday, February 14, 2021 2 Adar 5781

10:00 AM - 12:00 PMZoom

The Inclusion Task Force will host a panel discussion with three activists for disability justice: Sheryl Grossman, Joe Shapiro and Jim Weisman, moderated by Rabbi Lauren Tuchman. This panel will be addressing the tremendous and often overlooked and underreported impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on people with disabilities. People with disabilities, including elderly people, are the most likely to die. Many who do survive are left with lingering, possibly even life-long, disabilities. Yet, people with disabilities are not always prioritized in this pandemic. Some people with significant disabilities were turned away from hospitals or didn’t get treatment like ventilators. People with intellectual disabilities who live in group homes did not get the same priority to personal protective equipment and vaccination that was guaranteed to residents of nursing homes.
