Disability Rights Oregon
Disability Rights Oregon promotes and defends the rights of individuals with disabilities. We envision a society in which persons with disabilities have equality of opportunity, full participation, and the ability to exercise meaningful choice. Disability rights and other civil rights laws are rooted in a fundamental ideal: that every person, irrespective of their inherent differences, is equal—regardless of where we come from, how we worship, how we look, who we love, or whether we have a disability. Honoring our common humanity is a foundation for our vision of the world.
