Our work seeks to promote change primarily in government agencies and other institutions by establishing precedent-setting court cases, and by educating the disability, business, government, education, cancer and legal communities to avoid common issues that result in discrimination. DRLC trains local government and people with disabilities, and has close working relationships with disability commissions and grassroots disability organizations. We partner with other public interest law offices and private law firms to litigate systemic issues and legislative advocacy efforts.
