Plain Language Summary Available

The Association of University Centers on Disabilities (AUCD) is a national organization that supports the right of self-determination for individuals with intellectual and other disabilities, and opposes the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court. "The appointment of Judge Kavanaugh threatens civil rights protections for people with disabilities including access to healthcare," said Andrew Imparato, Executive Director of AUCD. "Judge Kavanaugh's record on the D.C. Circuit has failed to support the critical principle of self-determination for people with intellectual disabilities and the importance of access to healthcare for millions of Americans with disabilities."
