Re: 852 Civil and Human Rights, Faith Based, Justice Reform, Housing advocates from National, State and Local Organizations Support Disability Integration Act of 2019 (H.R. 555/S. 117) and its movement in the 116th

Dear Speaker Pelosi and Minority Leader McCarthy,

In honor of the 29th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) which we celebrate later this month, 852 civil and human Rights, faith based, justice reform and housing advocates from national, state and local organizations write to say that we support The Disability Integration Act of 2019 (DIA) (H.R. 555/S. 117). This bipartisan, bicameral legislation will ensure that people with disabilities live in the community, which is the premise of the ADA – community integration.

People with disabilities have a civil right through the ADA to live in the community. This year was also the 20th Anniversary of the Supreme Court Case titled Olmstead v Lois Curtis. This is the case that recognized the fundamental equality of those with disabilities. It stated that people with disabilities have the right to live in the most integrated setting possible for their needs. This means that they cannot be forced to live in institutions. Unfortunately two decades after this historic civil rights decision millions of Americans with disabilities and seniors remain and are forced to live in institutions. Research proves that most multi-marginalized communities especially Black and Brown people and the LGBTQIA community are forced into institutions at a higher rate (New York Times 2014).

That is why I am proud to support the Disabilities Integration Act DIA.

This important civil rights bill picks up where Olmstead left off. It enshrines in Federal statute the right to live in the community, which Olmstead recognized. It gives people with disabilities and seniors the right to demand that states and insurers remove the obstacles, which stand in the way of their integration. It takes what disability advocates have learned in working for integration in the past eighteen years and gives disability advocates another and a more powerful tool to effect that integration.” This quote is from Steve Gold one of the Olmstead litigators. (written in 2017)

The 852 civil and human rights, faith based, justice reform and housing advocates from national, state and local organizations join Steve Gold and more than 50 civil rights attorneys (see letter here: http://cdrnys.org/dia-attorney-letter/) in support of DIA and the movement of the bill in the 116th congress. DIA has 230 Cosponsors both Democrats (214) and Republicans (16) in the House of Representatives yet is remains stalled in the House Energy and Commerce Committee with no movement expected. The many organizations supporting this bill understand that the communities they advocate for every day include people with disabilities or have family or friends with disabilities and DIA will ensure that they are part of our community in this country as the ADA and Olmstead case intended.

We call on Congress specifically the House of Representatives, to pass this imperative civil rights legislation today!
