Jordan Berger Highlights NCLEJ’s Cases Advancing Disability Rights

Jordan Berger (’20), current Fellow at the National Center for Law and Economic Justice, published a blog post on NCLEJ’s website celebrating progress in three NCLEJ cases advancing disability rights on the 32nd anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) (“This is What Fighting for Disability Rights Looks Like,” July 26). These cases in Missouri, Michigan, and Suffolk County, New York, are just three of NCLEJ’s crucial cases in defense of disabled people’s rights to have their basic needs met and obtain health care that supports their independence and well-being. Since cases can take many years to resolve, the road to justice is long. Yet the legal rights established by the ADA and secured in these cases, secure important protections and expanding critical access to basic needs benefits for indigent, disabled people.”
