Do you want to become better informed about disability issues? The White House Disability Group has begun hosting monthly disability conference calls, during which the public can call in to learn about updates on a range of disability-related issues and meet individuals who work on disability issues in the federal government. Live captioning is available during the event.
About the White House Disability Group
The White House Disability Group is part of the Office of Public Engagement, headed by Valerie B. Jarett, Senior Advisor to the President:
The Office of Public Engagement creates and coordinates opportunities for direct dialogue between the Obama Administration and the American public, while bringing new voices to the table and ensuring that everyone can participate and inform the work of the President.
The Office of Public Engagement helps open two-way dialogue, ensuring that the issues impacting our nation’s proud and diverse communities have a receptive team dedicated to making their voices heard within the Administration, and even more importantly, helping their concerns be translated into action by the appropriate bodies of the Federal Government.
The Office of Public Engagement removes obstacles and barriers for engagement and works to improve public awareness and involvement in the work of the Administration.
