During the challenging times of COVID-19, we are reminded of how important it is to create a world where each and every one of us is 100% included in all aspects of society, especially in obtaining access to health care, education and employment. We celebrate the progress the ADA has made for people with disabilities and acknowledge the work that lies ahead.Give Today

"I write to you today acknowledging the deep fear, frustration, sadness, anger, internal conflict, and other emotions so many of us are feeling now in the wake of the murder of George Floyd. While we don't all share the same life experiences, we do share a deep commitment to doing all we can to address systemic racism and move our country forward." - Jon Horowitch, President and CEO of Easterseals DC MD VA
On July 14th, we were pleased to host a virtual Candid Conversations event about balancing self-care, career and childcare during COVID-19. During the webinar, our esteemed panel spoke about the many challenges we are currently facing: maintaining physical health and wellness; caring for children while working remotely full time; racial disparities in health care; the mental health struggles that result from social distancing; and the importance of staying home to save lives.
