May 2011 White House Monthly Disability Call

Few people realize that 17 per cent of the population of the US is disabled.  This is a large number and growing.  Additionally, it means that every person in the US is touched by disabilities in one way or another.  Every faith group is touched by many forms of disability–from age-related cognitive decline to birth defects, autism.  Physical and mental health issues grab the Christian, Jew, Muslim and infidel.  Therefore, The White House has formed a disability group.  Each month thousands of people join to be a part of the discussions regarding disabilities via a conference phone call.  Here is the information regarding the May 2011 White House Disability Call.
