To meet the informational needs of Americans from Uruguay to Alaska with diverse disabilities.
To promote awareness of disability culture by building bridges of understanding among all people.
To enhance our collective quality of life and access to freedom.


Working with one another to identify issues and strengthen resources, we enable individual communities. We work to interconnect the broader disability community. We see a strong, culturally diverse and multi-disciplined perspective as critical in shaping national policies promoting and sustaining the disability community.

Further, we encourage the free sharing of information, the active sharing of access to information resources, and the development of ethical, enlightened disability social policy. We wish to encourage increased quality of life through education and skills development, diverse employment opportunities, and arts and recreation.

Most recently we have partnered with those serving people with disabilities in order to develop protective resources for people with visible disabilities, who are at a heightened risk for violent crime and being left unprepared in the face of natural and man-made disasters. Because our communities may not always be the first to speak to an injustice, we help give international voice to the plight of all people with disabilities.

Our partnerships also include builders and others that are increasing serving an aging market in parts of the Americas, and workshops that help these entities better meet their needs in providing services of greater value to people with disabilities and special needs whose needs have historically been overlooked."
