2016 Democratic Party Platform Draft Released

July 11, 2016

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) has released a draft party platform that lays out the party's positions on a number of topics. Though the final platform has not yet been released, party committee members met last week to hammer out a final version which will be unveiled at the DNC convention later this month. The draft document includes several provisions relevant to people with disabilities, and uses inclusive language throughout. Disability rights are highlighted in one section, with the party saying it believes in access to gainful employment for people with disabilities, and pledges to support family caregivers of the aging and disabled populations.
