Disability Rights California is participating in #GivingTuesday on December 2nd 2014. #GivingTuesday is a movement to celebrate and provide incentives to give. It will culminate with a global day of giving on December 2, 2014. This effort harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners— charities, families, businesses and individuals—to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. #GivingTuesday will inspire people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they celebrate and help create a better world. #GivingTuesday will harness the power of social media to create a global moment that is dedicated to giving around the world.

Ten years ago, Gabriel's motorcycle accident caused serious disabilities. It was only with In-Home Supportive Services that he could stay in the family home. Errors were made and he was dropped from IHSS by mistake. This threw Gabriel's life into chaos and his mother came to DRC for a resolution. DRC represented Gabriel at an administrative hearing and his IHSS hours were promptly restored.
