2022: Year-in-Review

2022 was another busy year for us! Join us in celebrating many accomplishments as we face the ever growing challenges brought forth by climate change and disasters, the COVID-19 pandemic, and political disasters like the russian invasion in Ukraine.


      • Grew our Community’s understanding of disability disaster equity
      • Responded to hundreds of disabled people calling our Disability and Disaster Hotline
      • Supported Disability-led organizations in the U.S., Haiti and Ukraine
      • Reached 1,000 consecutive Daily COVID-19 Disability Rights and Disasters Calls
      • Continue to build lasting relationships with federal partners, academia, and throughout the community

2023 is off to a dangerous start for Disabled people with the extreme winter storms in the West coast, tornadoes, and now with the looming end of the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency. 

We strive to achieve Disability Justice throughout the disaster phases – thanks to your support, collaborations, and donations. We hope you enjoy our 2022 Year-in-Review.

One Comment on “2022: Year-in-Review

  1. The Partnership’s 2022 Year-In-Review is a well documented testimony to the relentless pursuit for inclusion and equity for people with disabilities and others with Access and Functional needs (AFN) in all aspects of disasters and public health emergencies!

    There is no other organization like the Partnership in the U.S. though I would graciously welcome more. The growth in membership and professional relationship is remarkable. The true beauty of empowering a community of people who often feel invisible and voiceless is the passion it ignites in the Whole Community! The secret of this organizations success clearly resides in a welcoming environment that fosters hope and the belief that together we win!

    The representation that the Partnership provides on the World stage illustrates the power of unity, inclusion, and equity as a true human value. Together with WID and GADRA, this Partnership excludes no one anywhere! This is a future I can believe in and fight for. Everyone, everywhere should take a long reflective look at how well this organization represents their values and vision!
