President Obama Engages with Youth with Disabilities

Summary: 
President Obama sat down with participants from the American Association of People with Disabilities internship program to hear their thoughts about the future of disability policy

As President Obama has so often said, change in America happens from the bottom up.  It happens when people organize, speak out, and have a seat at the table. 

Recently, President Obama met with some youth with disabilities. He wanted to hear their thoughts about the future of disability policy. So, he sat down with participants from the American Association of People with Disabilities internship program. These future leaders spent their summer in DC, interning with various organizations. 

Today, we are pleased to release a video that recaps that meeting. Watch it on YouTube here.

These young people are passionate and strong representatives for millions of people with disabilities across the country. They represent a brighter future for America. President Obama is ready to stand and fight alongside them each and every day.
