Our Priorites

Our Funding Priorities Areas

DISABILITY CIVIL RIGHTS EDUCATION

Disability civil rights education teaches about the rights of people with disabilities, including the right to equal access and participation in society free from discrimination. It promotes disability justice.

STOPPING DISABILITY DISCRIMINATION

Disability discrimination can be reduced through education, enforcing laws protecting rights, improving accessibility, calling out biases, advocating for inclusion, embracing diversity, and treating disabled people with dignity and respect.

ENDING DISABILITY FRAUD

Disability fraud involves people falsely claiming to have disabilities or exaggerating symptoms to receive government benefits they are not entitled to, taking resources meant for those genuinely disabled. It is unethical and illegal.

Disability Pride Month

On July 26, 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act was signed into law by President George Bush. He would later require the use of a task-trained service dog, Sully Bush, who became a major social media star.

PROJECT SCOUT

Reach Out and Touch Someone... Our three-year mission extension, Project Scout, travelling to educate 150+ communities across the United States. Follow the journey #projectscout on most social media.

First-Person Language

Person-first language emphasizes the person before their disability or condition, using phrases like "person with autism" rather than "autistic person." It aims to avoid defining people solely by their disability.
