Our Track Record:

The Network has always sought to elevate stories of people living with disabilities and their caregivers. We’ve developed and run deep dive features on ALS, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Traumatic Brain Injuries, and more. Although we are proud of these outputs, we understand we have a lot further to go.

What’s Next:

The Network will be significantly expanding our policy work on the disability front. This means taking a more comprehensive and intentional approach to folding cognitive and physical disability policy work into our portfolio. We really want to get this right, so we’ve been working closely with disability experts to refine our policy positions on this important issue area. Stay tuned for more specific information.
