Advocacy

The Disability Resource Center acts in collaboration with other organizations such as the Massachusetts Statewide Independent Living Council and the other ten MA Independent Living Centers to eliminate barriers to full social participation by individuals with disabilities. Advocacy may take any one of several forms including technical assistance on laws and regulations to other service organizations, or education of elected and appointed local and state officials on rights and benefits of participation by persons with disabilities.
