NYLPI’s Disability Justice Program highlights rights to housing and employmentAugust 18, 2021
Last week Ruth Lowenkron, NYLPI’s Director of the Disability Justice Program, spoke on a panel on Employment Rights, Remote Work, and Disability Justice. Lowenkron kicked off the panel by defining reasonable accommodations under disability law as: “a change to a job, the work environment, [or] the way things are usually done, that is required in order to allow the individual with a disability to enjoy equal employment opportunities.”
The full panel can be viewed on the Facebook page for the Office of the Public Advocate: https://fb.watch/7teARKCY5q/.
ASL interpretation and open captions were included as part of the panel.
This week Suhali Méndez, Senior Advocate of the Disability Justice program, joined Sinergia NY for a presentation on Reasonable Housing Accommodations in NYC. This training was held to educate the public of their legal rights in the area of reasonable accommodation and how to enforce their rights.
