- Only 19 percent of adults with disabilities held jobs last year, compared with 66 percent of those without disabilities.
- Children with physical and intellectual disabilities have fewer options for extracurricular activities and job training.
- Disabled people are more likely to be incarcerated or to be victims of police violence, especially if they are not white.
- Voter turnout is low, partly because of logistical difficulties. (“If people with disabilities voted at the same rate as otherwise-similar people without disabilities, there would be an additional 2.35 million voters,” a Rutgers University analysis concluded.)
- Because the A.D.A. didn’t require all old buildings to be retrofitted, many remain inaccessible.
