Councilwoman Linda Lee on Wednesday, Sept. 14, introduced two bills to improve accessibility across city agencies and expand employment opportunities for New York City’s disabled community. 

“As a social worker, and now as chair of the Committee on Mental Health, Disabilities and Addictions, I’ve seen how the pandemic disproportionately affected the nearly 1 million people in New York with disabilities,” Lee said. “This legislation is about making good on the promise of equal access for all New Yorkers while fulfilling the vision of strengthening our city’s workforce on our road to recovery.”
