The National Council on Disability (NCD) released Rocking the Cradle: Ensuring the Rights of Parents with Disabilities and Their Children, a groundbreaking policy study that provides a comprehensive overview of factors that support and obstruct Americans with all kinds of disabilities from exercising their fundamental right to begin and maintain families. The study explores the pervasive prejudices faced by parents with disabilities by exposing the disparate treatment often encountered by parents with disabilities and their children within court and service systems and offers draft model state and federal statutory language to correct the discrimination faced by parents with disabilities in the United States.

On December 4 Generations United will release a new report, Hunger and Nutrition: What’s at Stake for Children, Families and Older Adults, that challenges traditional approaches to addressing the problem of hunger and elevates intergenerational solutions that strengthen our families and communities.
