Fresno County –
People with disabilities in our nation should not have to beg our government for access to their basic human rights.
But this week, the House is set to vote on legislation that would gut the Americans with Disabilities Act, legislation that mandates people with disabilities should have equal and fair opportunities in American life.
If this bill is signed into law, it could set back disability rights nearly three decades — that’s why we have to act now to defeat it:
Sign my petition if you agree: Tell the Republicans to stop targeting people living with disabilities who deserve the same civil rights and opportunities as any American citizen. Make your voice heard right now.
This is not the first time the Republicans have targeted people with disabilities over the previous year. And it likely won’t be the last.
During the debate to repeal the Affordable Care Act, the plans the Republicans proposed time and again would’ve been devastating for those living with a disability.
And let’s not forget Betsy Devos, who has consistently sided against students with disabilities, even rescinding guidance designed to protect them last October.
The legislation being debated in the House this week would make it more difficult for Americans living with a disability to demand equal opportunity and accommodation in our country — and that’s why I’m asking:
Can you sign my petition demanding Republicans stop targeting people with disabilities? We should be doing more to protect them, not less.
Thanks for all you do,
U.S. Senator, California
