Mayor’s Committee for Persons with Disabilities

Purpose

The Mayor's Committee for Persons with Disabilities is an advisory and advocacy group that helps formulate solutions to meet the needs of Newport New’s disabled community. The group also provides advice on issues involving compliance with state and national legislation. The committee works to improve the awareness of every person's abilities rather than their disabilities and wants to make Newport News a more accessible city.
