Coronavirus (COVID-19) Health and Safety Guide
ASERT has compiled resources for those with autism and those who care for people with autism relating to the current COVID-19 outbreak.
It’s important for people with disabilities to live in communities and settings of their choice. But it’s harder for disabled people of color to access community living. There are barriers resulting from racist policies that create unfair situations for people of color. Racism impacts policies dealing with emergencies, police violence, housing, and much more.
Join Greg Robinson, Deputy Director of Public Policy at the Autistic Self Advocacy Network (ASAN) as he discusses “Crisis in our Communities: Racial Disparities in Community Living” a toolkit that explains how policy choices, now and in the past, keep disabled people of color from accessing community living.
Greg Robinson is the Deputy Director of Public Policy at ASAN’s national office. He holds a Master’s Degree in Public Health Studies from the University of Pennsylvania. Prior to ASAN, he worked in community program development around housing and community health for underserved communities in Philadelphia as an Americorps VISTA, and in inclusive career development and employment supports for undergraduate students as a graduate assistant at Drexel University. His passion in policy centers around the intersections of social determinants of health in marginalized communities.
