Policymakers, service providers, the advocacy community and the general public are invited to join an online dialogue on how existing laws affect youth with disabilities in the transition from school to work. The U.S. Departments of Labor, Education, and Health and Human Services and the Social Security Administration are co-hosting the online event on May 13-27.
"We must ensure that our federal programs and resources support our nation's youths and young adults with disabilities in reaching their dreams of economic empowerment and independence," said Kathy Martinez, assistant secretary of labor for disability employment policy. "Speaking up online can help us identify barriers as well as opportunities that may exist at the federal level and also help us develop solutions."
