We facilitate the public policy debate, legislative activity, and advocacy efforts in the disability field through the dissemination of research. Advocates use our data to advocate for better services for people with disabilities.

We provide press releases, participate in press conferences and offer expertise to media outlets like New York Times, Chicago Reader, Fox News and Chicago Tribune.

This knowledge and data educates policymakers on issues of importance to the disability community, and they in turn request information from our research.
