Making Public Benefits Accessible to Clients with Visual Impairments

with Greg Bass

The state and local agencies that handle public benefits send out a lot of important information to people who qualify, apply for, or receive those benefits. But how do people with serious visual impairments get that information? In New York, people received it in a haphazard and insufficient way—until the National Center for Law and Economic Justice sued under the ADA and other laws.

Join our November episode of the Advocacy Exchange, our monthly conversation with advocates advancing change. Our guest will be Greg Bass, the senior attorney at the National Center for Law and Economic Justice who brought the New York litigation. We’ll talk about the case and how it can be a model for advocacy in other states.
