TASK FORCES
AD HOC FINANCIAL SECURITY AND POVERTY
 

Mission

The CCD Financial Security and Poverty Task Force works to promote public policy aimed at increasing the financial security of all individuals with disabilities and their families. Because of the disproportionate number of people with disabilities living in poverty, our task force also advocates for public policy that impacts people living in poverty, including the disproportionate number of people of color with disabilities living in poverty.

Co-chairs

  • Ashley Burnside
    The Center for Law and Social Policy

  • Aaron Kaufman
    The Jewish Federations of North America

  • Darcy Milburn
    The Arc of the United States
