This team’s project examined the landscape of disability justice and obstacles to mainstreaming of support and accommodations for these groups that lead to cycles of poverty, and financial exclusion in New York City, Westchester County, and Long Island. The methodology included a literature review, demographic analysis, and interviews. The findings showed that disabled women of color are an under researched cohort of the population. Data showed that disabled people of color frequently live below the poverty line, lack access to secure banking services, depend heavily on disability assistance programs, and face compounding systems of discrimination (e.g., racism, sexism, ableism). Recommendations include education on barrier-free work environments in office buildings and small to medium sized businesses, further specification in demographic data for policymakers to better address the needs of these populations, improvements in the public transportation system, and the expansion of eligibility for Social Security benefits.
