FREED Supports the Community During COVID-19

“In the midst of every crisis
lies great opportunity.”
~Albert Einstein

2020 has undoubtedly been a time of crisis.  Together we have experienced a world-wide pandemic, social unrest, wildfires, and public safety power shut offs.  We have seen issues that have always existed for people with disabilities and older adults intensified by the COVID-19 Pandemic.

FREED Statement on COVID-19 & Masks

The Americans with Disabilities Act was signed into law thirty years ago to prevent discrimination against people with disabilities and to extend opportunity and promote inclusion of people with disabilities in society. Here in Nevada County, people with disabilities play an important role in all facets of life and social discourse. We as a community must do what we can to slow the spread of the coronavirus and protect those of us who are at higher risk for serious complications from COVID-19.
