Justice & Dignity

Those whom we represent – Ohioans with disabilities – direct all aspects of our organization
We embrace our role to protect and advocate, and we are driven by a desire to see all Ohioans with disabilities flourish
Our teams empower our constituents to make their own decisions, and to be vocal and determined in their efforts, even when systemic forces create barriers
Access & Opportunities
We recognize that people with disabilities have many identities and are often forgotten. We celebrate their uniqueness and seek to reduce disparities to ensure equitable resources for all.
