We're going on a #roadtrip for disability awareness
Eventually, including celebrating our 10-year anniversary!
American Disability Rights Inc trusts that education is the key to understanding.
Our contribution is to focus on upholding the rights of Americans with disabilities to live as fully and independently as possible by securing proper protections and inclusion for service dogs and emotional support animals when prescribed as part of an individual’s treatment plan.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey (ACS) for the year 2021, an estimated 42.5 million Americans reported having a disability, which accounts for approximately 12.6% of the population. That’s roughly 2* the total number of current students in college or graduate programs.
The term “handicapped” is no longer widely used in official contexts, as it is considered outdated and potentially offensive. Instead, the preferred term is “people with disabilities” or “individuals with disabilities.”
A disability refers to a physical, mental, sensory, or cognitive impairment that can affect a person’s ability to participate in daily activities and interact with their environment. Disabilities can be temporary, permanent, or progressive, and they vary in severity and impact from person to person.
These rights are intended to ensure that people with disabilities are treated with dignity, respect, and fairness, and that they have the same access to opportunities and services as individuals without disabilities.
AmDisRights needs volunteers like you to drive our social campaigns, outreach, and events forward.
