(1) Assume good faith from your colleagues. We are all here to learn together.(2) Please use the “chat” or “raise hand” function if you wish to share. Participants are not permitted to unmute themselves. To share verbally, you will be called on after virtually raising your hand.(3) Please recognize and respect others feelings, background, and cultural differences(4) Be judicious and efficient with shared information and experiences. If you are speaking, try to limit yourself to 30 seconds or less. It can be just as courageous to listen as it is to share, so please do your best to understand when it is best to step back, instead of stepping up.(5) If you are speaking, please speak slowly as there is an English captioner and ASL interpreters working diligently. This is true for meeting presenters as well as participants.

This will allow you to keep the interpretation video front and center during the meeting. The hosts will also “spotlight” the ASL interpreter, so it should automatically come to the front, as well. “

repeat the #2 title. Leadership.... please repeat for notes
Matthew Stewart
01:17:25
I appreciate your statistics on how we as Black people in this country face much disability and disparity at much higher rates. Also how biased view points perpetuate these facts. As Blacks are often diagnosed with more severe mental health diagnoses than whites for the same symptoms. I see this add to the bias when it comes to labeling Black parents as unfit. Do you have any suggestions on how we can better protect and advocate for Black parents who have their children removed by child welfare systems?
Gail Fuller
01:17:35
What role does philanthropy need to play in social justice, diversity, equity, and inclusion?
Shannon Rivas
01:17:35
Britney, about African Americans with disabilities having to vote at the elections in person due to covid-19, should there be a way to have absentee ballots in the near future?
Mariah Barber
01:17:39
thank you Brittney , thoughts on queer black disabled community and how to bring in more inclusive voices.
Syreeta Nolan
01:17:42

What could colleges and universities do better to hear the voices of individuals of color who are also individuals with disabilities.

James Garcia
01:18:35
Thoughts on reports that early vaccination rates among people of color are lagging dramatically as compared to whites?
Kristin Dulaney
01:18:53
How can white allies help advocate for name it and claim it, leadership by the most impacted, and continued accessibility?
Pat Carney
01:18:54
Hi Britney. Thank you so much! I am a sexuality educator with people with IDD in MA. I work with medical students to give them at least a little information about disability and sexuality. Like your experience in law school, they get almost NO introduction. Thank you for highlighting this. Any suggestions for advocating for this?
Adair Milmoe
01:19:56
I oversee Accessibility Services at a SUNY - with 30% diversity. To date, our 250 students that are registered are white. How can I outreach to students of color to step forward for academic support?
Mariah Barber
01:20:16
thoughts on shifting career and focus into the diversity and inclusion space from a previous job in global health. I have lived experience in creating accessibility for myself but some of this worn is so performative. any suggestions on ways to build a bridge into this work is welcomed

I am going to repeat a question that may have been missed. How can white allies help advocate for name it and claim it, leadership by the most impacted, and continued accessibility?
Alejandra Arroyo
01:22:30
What resources do you recommend for future healthcare professionals so we can take responsibility in educating ourselves?
Patrick Murphy
01:23:05
IMO, vaccine distribution currently seems to just be exacerbating inequities in our society. As providers who may have access to vaccines, regardless of our actual risk, is there any advice you have for leveraging our positions to potentially helping other ppl get access to vaccines. Potentially even giving our spots to other community members?
Susan Mizner
01:23:10

Does the Kamala Harris vice presidency offer you hope that not only issues impacting people of color will be better addressed, but those of people with disabilities as well? And how would you define tangible progress by the Biden administration 1 or 2 years from now.
Pat Carney
01:28:43
You may have addressed this: I am wondering about your thoughts about diagnosis bias related to children and youth of color... biased toward more 'behavior' disorders v learning disabilities, autism, ADHD, etc.
Deanna Parker
01:29:21
Thank you so much for your perspective and insight. I am the parent of a young black male with DD and it is a struggle just to articulate all of the ways that racial justice, inequity and racial and disability bias intersect across the broad spectrum of our daily lives as we try to advocate and support him. By the way, I am a proud HU graduate as well and a recent LEND faculty member.
Amelia Dorsey

CCS (Compensatory COVID Services) needs to be addressed with an IEP meeting. parents/families need to ask for data and parents/families are part of the decision if the student qualifies for CCS.
Meaghan Kramer
01:32:55
What advice would you give to new advocates?

Linda Wolford
01:35:09
You did mention some people with disabilities getting appointed into the President's cabinet and Biden did say his Cabinet would "look like America." However people with disabilities are the largest group of under represented groups and we haven't seen any high level people with disabilities in the Cabinet. Do you have any comment?
Benjamin NIMPE
01:35:35

Asking again - How do you address those who are promoting health equity realize that they also need to include disability in effort to advance equity?
Felicia Spiess
01:38:00

Aggrey Sawuka

Question: Biden has more Asian Indians than any other minority. In the light that Google CEO dislikes African-American grievances while Google sponsor the Black Caucus in Congress. Does this hurt African American and Hispanic community? Why can't conflict of interest questioned here?
Pat Carney
01:43:35
I agree!! I hear from parents all the time that they are not informed about the accommodations and services available.
Deanna Parker

Among you and your colleagues in the disability advocacy world, as well as racial equity world, are you concerned that the saturating tragedy of COVID may stymie the momentum of the recent racial justice reckoning?
Susan Kluge
01:47:35
Thank you!!
Carol Gardner
01:47:37
Attorney Wilson you are so very articulate and skilled. Thank you for such a phenomenal presentation.
McKinley Rouse
01:47:37
Ms. Wilson is totally correct about how minority children are treated differently for certain behaviors. Children with disabilities and minority children are funneled into the school to prison pipeline. There is a lot of implicit bias against minority children, and children with disabilities. This extends to law enforcement, school official ect.
