People with disabilities and seniors who reply on electrical power for mobility and medical needs are at risk because of power outages caused by extreme weather and disasters. This campaign will raise funds to support:
- information about options for power alternatives and other emergency assistance
- organizing and advocacy to make sure people with disabilities and seniors are involved in policy-making and development of support efforts
- development of legislation and government programs of support
- holding public agencies and power companies accountable
Deborah Kaplan, an attorney and experienced disability advocate and leader, will use all funds to support these goals and keep concerned people and groups informed.
