A major win in Disability Advocacy today! The US Department of Health and Human Services finalized a rule that prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability.

“By removing barriers to health care and social services, this rule advances justice for people with disabilities who have for too long been subject to discrimination. No diagnosis should be missed because of an inaccessible mammogram, no patient should be left with questions about test results due to inaccessible websites, and no life should be valued less due to disability," said HHS OCR Director Melanie Fontes Rainer.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has announced that they are accepting public comment through April 8, 2024 on a proposal to create American Sign Language (ASL) video alerts for emergencies. The proposal would also simplify the process of sending non-English language alerts over television and radio using the Emergency Alert System (EAS). The proposal was announced in an FCC Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM). An NPRM is an official document that announces and explains a federal government agency's plan to address a problem or accomplish a goal.

Comments can be submitted through the FCC’s Electronic Comment Filing System and must reference PS Docket No. 15-94. https://www.fcc.gov/ecfs/filings/standard

People with disabilities who need assistance to file comments online may request assistance by email at [email protected].
