Advocacy is central to each of our programs—it is the foundation of everything we do. Teaching people with disabilities to advocate for themselves, and to advocate to change the systems that serve them, will shape our dream of a barrier-free inclusive world.
We believe that people with disabilities have the right to: choose with whom and where they live; work in a competitive job at a fair wage; plan their own social activities; worship where they wish; use public transportation; vote independently in an accessible polling place; and have adequate supports to live the lives they choose while being treated with dignity and respect.
