The Center for Disability Rights, Law & Advocacy

 

Nebraska Advocacy Services Inc. (NAS), The Center for Disability Rights, Law and Advocacy, was created to assist individuals with disabilities and their families in protecting and advocating for their rights. From its beginning, NAS has promoted the principles of equality, self-determination, and dignity of persons with disabilities. NAS is independent of any public or private agency which provides treatment or services to people with disabilities. Our board of directors is composed of individuals with disabilities, family members and other people who are interested in the rights of people with disabilities. NAS operates seven federally funded protection and advocacy (P&A) programs. The P&A system is a nationwide network of congressionally created, legally based disability rights agencies. P&A organizations within the system each have the authority to provide legal representation and other advocacy services to people with disabilities and, together, comprise the nation's largest provider of legally based advocacy services for people with disabilities. As the protection and advocacy system in Nebraska, NAS has the authority to provide legal representation and other advocacy services to people with disabilities. NAS investigates incidents of abuse and neglect and may provide legal representation to protect the legal and human rights of people with disabilities. Through a variety of other activities including public education, information and referral, and public policy analysis, Nebraska Advocacy Services, Inc., works to change public attitudes and increase public awareness of the legal and human rights of people with disabilities.
