Collectively, 2020 has presented challenges many of us wonder if we can overcome. For nearly three decades, Disability Rights Advocates (DRA) has wielded the ADA and other disability rights laws to bring about justice for the those who are often overlooked. DRA breaks down illegal societal inequities by taking on giants and battling against great odds so that people with disabilities can exercise their civil rights to equal participation.
This year, DRA expanded our work on behalf of ICE detainees; incarcerated youth; voters; students attempting to “distance learn”; patients in hospitals; people who are homeless; all with disabilities and many combating violence and systemic discrimination. DRA answered the call of our clients in response to a growing crisis of increasing inequity, in the face of a pandemic and an ongoing fight for racial justice. This is WHO WE ARE and who we have always been.
We celebrate 30 years of the ADA this year, a monumental milestone in our fight for equality. We have never been busier, and we have never needed your support more! COVID has required us to pivot our work and our fundraising – and only with your support can we continue to fight – and succeed!
