November 14, 2022

Community members with disabilities deserve the same rights as everyone else and should have the same opportunities. Many want to work and earn a living wage, attend school or college, have friends, enjoy dates, lead a healthy life and participate in a faith or social community. Unfortunately, that is not the reality when the safety of disabled residents is in jeopardy. The disabled community continues to be marginalized through a lack of comprehensive public policy. As Baltimore continues to grapple with public safety challenges, community members with disabilities must not be left behind. Whether it is the case of a child with autism being found alone in the park or a deaf man killed at a Baltimore jail, we see frequent examples of the mistreatment of people with disabilities.
