DRW

Contact for:

  • Disability rights information and referrals
  • Problem solving strategies for disability issues
  • Community education and training
  • Legal services for disability discrimination or violation of rights.

The focus of legal resources is on major cases which will improve service systems for people with disabilities. They exist because society and service systems are not always fair or responsive to people with disabilities. They work for change in policies, laws and systems that promote:

  • Freedom from abuse and neglect
  • Legal rights and responsibilities
  • Adequately funded supports and services
  • Communities that involve everyone

DRW is governed by a Board of Directors with help from our Advisory Councils. These groups are made up of people with disabilities, family members and others who have an interest in disability rights.
