Former Fellow on SSI Reform

Rebecca Vallas, a former fellow in law and aging, is a national expert on SSI and economic justice. She was mentioned and quoted in a July 30, 2021, New York Times article on possible congressional changes to SSI: Rebecca Vallas, a senior fellow at the Century Foundation and a leader of #DemolishDisabledPoverty, called the current effort “the logical next step of what we saw in 2017 and 2018, when the disability community and the senior community came together to fight in lock step to protect the Affordable Care Act and Medicaid.”
