This Summit, held on September 20, 2017, brought together leaders in government, the financial services sector, the disability and asset building communities and Fortune 100 companies to discuss strategies for improving financial access for individuals across the spectrum of disabilities. During breakout sessions, groups worked together to design the next generation of collective efforts that seek to fulfill the promise of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to bring people with disabilities more fully into the economic mainstream. Below, you will find the resources given out at the summit.
