The Mayor's Commission on People with Disabilities (MCPD)

The Mayor’s Commission on People with Disabilities conducts systemic advocacy on behalf of Philadelphians with disabilities within City government and the citywide disability community. The Commission’s advocacy efforts include:

  • Fighting to ensure that people with disabilities are employed in integrated workplaces and receive fair, market-based wages.
  • Advocating for affordable, accessible housing.
  • Ensuring that children with disabilities are educated alongside their non-disabled peers and receive the necessary skills to enter the workforce and/or higher education.
  • Making sure that Philadelphians with disabilities are included in all facets of the community.
