The Breaking Barriers Awards Gala is DRM’s signature annual event bringing together attorneys, corporate and foundation leaders, government representatives and disability advocates. We honor and celebrate visionary leaders whose unwavering dedication to disability rights has resulted in meaningful progress towards a more equitable and inclusive society.
ACCESSIBILITY: Our goal is to host inclusive, accessible events that enable all people to engage fully. We choose venues that are wheelchair accessible, provide valet parking and have an on-site sign language interpreter(s). We ask all guests to please refrain from wearing strong fragrances. Additional accomodations can be requested.
Funds raised at the Gala directly support DRM’s mission to protect and advance the rights of Marylanders with disabilities.
Disability Rights Maryland (DRM) is a non-profit organization and the designated Protection and Advocacy (P&A) organization in Maryland. DRM provides legal representation, engages in systemic advocacy and empowers people to become self-advocates through education. DRM works to ensure individuals are protected from abuse, neglect and unnecessary institutionalization.
