According to the 2010 US Census, there are 303.9 million people living in America, and 56.7 million of them are people with disabilities. This means that roughly one in five Americans has some form of disability, and many more have a personal connection to a person with a disability. With statistics like these, one would assume meaningful discussions about disability would occur in the political climate. But is this really the case? Equal Entry recently investigated the presidential candidates’ discussions about accessibility issues. We also looked at the campaign websites themselves for a few important accessibility barriers. Read what we discovered, and tell us what you think!
