Disability advocates compare candidates

DEAR EDITOR:

The mission of Disability Rights Ohio (DRO) is to advocate for the human, civil and legal rights of people with disabilities in Ohio. As a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization, the soul of our work is rooted in empowering Ohioans with disabilities to make the best choices for themselves. That’s why we believe it is imperative to present fair and accurate information on where the presidential candidates stand on issues of importance to Ohioans with disabilities.

To that end, DRO has compiled a side-by-side candidate comparison on issues that impact people with disabilities — it can be viewed online at www.disabilityrightsohio.org/assets/documents/final-dro-2020-presi dential-candidate-comparison-fi nal.pdf.

Our resource features 15 different topics — covering everything from Medicaid to veterans and voting — with a brief description of each candidate’s position. For both President Trump and former Vice President Biden, each summary comes directly from either a campaign website, press release or official document. Each and every source is linked both to encourage transparency and encourage further research.

In these increasingly partisan times, DRO is committed to providing factual, sourced information and the resources necessary for all Ohioans to make informed decisions this election season. Because at DRO, we take action, not sides.
