WHEREAS, the “5 I’s of Disability Justice” is a policy framework built on foundational values to which self-advocates and activists within the disability movement dedicated themselves for the latter half of the 20th century including Involvement, Independence, Inclusion, Implementation and Intersectionality, and when used by policymakers, ensures the creation of truly disability friendly public policy; and

 

WHEREAS, this policy framework will be applied to all City policy development in the areas of employment, education, housing, healthcare, transportation, physical access, and social opportunity; and
