The DEJC is a first-of-its-kind initiative that brings together nearly forty leading disability advocacy organizations, Washington, D.C.–based think tanks, and top research and policy organizations to learn from each other, work in partnership, and apply disability as a lens across economic policymaking. The Scholar will support building agendas, planning meetings, and coordinating The Collab monthly newsletter.
