The website Rooted In Rights has compiled a great summary of the key disability-related moments that occurred in 2018.

“Participants reflected on the highs and lows, the wins and losses, the good and bad that 2018 held. We celebrated some of the biggest successes of the disability community’s advocacy, like our collective efforts to stall passage of H.R. 620, which would roll back civil rights protections from the Americans with Disabilities Act, and the cross-disability efforts to push back against the Public Charge rule, which would impact disabled people seeking to immigrate to the United States. We also shined on spotlight on individual triumphs, such as Liz Weintraub’s powerful testimony before the Senate during the Kavanaugh hearing and Senator Duckworth’s voting on the Senate floor with her baby in her arms.”
