Are you passionate about disability rights? Do you want to assist in efforts to ensure others are empowered to exercise and enjoy the full extent of their rights and to pursue the greatest possible quality of life?
People with disabilities still face prejudice and bias with the stereotypical portrayal of people with disabilities in the movies and in the media, physical barriers to schools, housing and to voting stations, and lack of affordable health care. The promise of the ADA is yet to be fully realized, but the disability rights movement continues to make great strides towards the empowerment and self-determination of Americans with disabilities.
By helping Disability Rights Wisconsin, other disability organizations/groups, and grassroots efforts, you are ensuring equal access and equal treatment of people with disabilities.
