One Strong Voice: Information and Resources Regarding Medical Rationing

One Strong Voice (OSV) is a policy group that meets via Zoom the 1st and 3rd Friday of every month. Our group includes CCDC staff and community leaders from across the state who work for or with disability organizations throughout Colorado. We provide a safe, confidential platform for discussing the issues which directly affect Colorado’s disability community, including housing, health care, K-12 Education, transportation, and more.

OSV participated in a call hosted by The American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD).  During the call, they received a number of questions about what individuals can do to prevent states from developing discriminatory medical triage protocols. Below is the list of resources they compiled, including the #NoBodyIsDisposable campaign, and a Know Your Rights toolkit for people facing discrimination during medical triage.

Listen to the call on 4/3/2020.
