Video Description: This webinar provides details about the Disability Integration Act, a federal bill that, if passed, would create an absolute right for all people with disabilities to live in the community instead of being forced into institutional settings, such as nursing homes. Participants learn the specifics of the bill, and how this law would benefit people with disabilities by ensuring services and supports needed are provided in a person’s home.
