DRM envisions a world where people with disabilities are fully included in the workplace, neighborhoods and all aspects of community life. To move us toward this vision, we focus our advocacy toward:

  • Freedom from abuse and neglect
  • Freedom from unnecessary institutionalization
  • Access to education, housing, transportation, and health care
  • Technical assistance and legal information to promote self-advocacy
  • Increasing public awareness about people with disabilities and the issues that matter to them

Our 2018 Advocacy Service Plan (Accessible PDF) includes:

  • Mental Health
  • Developmental Disabilities
  • Education
  • Nursing Facilities
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Assistive Technology
  • Civil Rights & Community Inclusion
  • Voting Rights
  • Medicaid
  • Advocacy for Social Security Beneficiaries
