Listening Sessions with Disability Stakeholders in Disaster Impacted Areas

The purpose of these listening sessions, conducted by DHS Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties and the Federal Emergency Management Agency, was to hear about concerns and experiences related to the impact of the disasters on individuals with disabilities.  Participants also shared effective practices for serving individuals with disabilities and others with access and functional needs.  By better understanding these experiences, and in partnership with state and local entities, including non-profit organizations, DHS can work to improve preparedness, response, and recovery for persons with disabilities in future disasters.
