Mission Statement

Mission

DRW challenges systems and society to achieve positive changes in the lives of people with disabilities and their families

Vision

All persons with disabilities and their families shall be empowered to exercise and enjoy the full extent of their rights and to pursue the greatest possible quality of life.

Description

Disability Rights Wisconsin is a private non profit organization which was founded in 1977. Designated by the Governor to ensure the rights of all state citizens with disabilities through individual advocacy and system change, DRW is part of a national system of federally mandated independent disability agencies. DRW is completely independent of government and the disability service system in order to be free of any conflicts of interests which would undermine our capacity to advocate vigorously on behalf of the human and legal rights of people with disabilities.

Disability Rights helps people across Wisconsin gain access to services and opportunity through its advocacy and legal expertise. We regularly challenge systems and society to create positive change and improve the lives of people with disabilities.

Committed board and staff members are among the strongest advocates in the state. We support the right of each person to live in dignity, to work and to attend school in the mainstream of society.

The agency also works on disability issues with state and local governments. Disability Rights Wisconsin receives financial support from individuals and private foundations and from training fees and government grants.
