The purpose of this event is to bring together Federal and State Agencies, Centers for Independent Living and People with Disabilities to discuss all the aspects of saving lives during emergencies.  People with disabilities continue to suffer deep losses and disproportionate death during the COVID-19 Pandemic.  Our goal is to bring together all the entities who make up the moving parts of this issue in order to discuss what went wrong; what was done right and most importantly, how to ensure lives are prioritized and saved.
