People with Disabilities Launch

Over 50 organizations representing people with varying disabilities have launched a coalition to support Assistant Attorney General Tom Perez’s confirmation to be Secretary of Labor.

in their own words, the disability groups have become among the most active supporters of a Perez confirmation because  “in the twenty three years since the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act, a top priority of the disability rights movement has been making sure that the law is properly enforced. In that time, few have played a greater role in advancing that cause than Assistant Attorney General Tom Perez. During his time leading the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice, Mr. Perez has earned his reputation as an extraordinary champion of people with disabilities by enforcing the law to ensure that every American has an equal opportunity to succeed.”
