RESPECTABILITY FIGHTS STIGMAS AND ADVANCES OPPORTUNITIES SO PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES CAN FULLY PARTICIPATE IN ALL ASPECTS OF COMMUNITY.
RespectAbility is a diverse, disability-led nonprofit that works to create systemic change in how society views and values people with disabilities, and that advances policies and practices that empower people with disabilities to have a better future. Our mission is to fight stigmas and advance opportunities so people with disabilities can fully participate in all aspects of community.
RespectAbility knows that most people with disabilities can and want to fully participate in - and contribute to - all aspects of society. RespectAbility shifts narratives and creates progress by centering people with lived disability experience in leadership roles, ensuring authentic representation in entertainment and news media, advancing successful public policy, and pushing for faith-based and other inclusion.
