Launching Urban’s Disability Equity Policy Initiative: A Conversation on Including Disability in Research
Body

The Urban Institute is launching a Disability Equity Policy Initiative (DEPI) within our Office of Race and Equity Research. This work will have three initial focus areas: housing for disabled people, immigrants with disabilities, and challenges for disabled people living in rural areas.

Please join the Urban Institute and nationally recognized experts for a conversation on the importance of researchers advocating for disability inclusion in data collection and how we can apply a disability lens to our work.
