Celebrating 40 Years of Advancing an Inclusive and Barrier-free California

For 40 years, Disability Rights California has advanced and protected the rights of Californians with disabilities. We have stopped abuse, obtained critical benefits and prevented the state from cutting important services. Our advocacy and litigation has directly helped almost a million individuals while having beneficial outcomes for millions more. ‎Last year alone, our advocacy resulted in over $5 million dollars in services and benefits to Californians with disabilities.

To celebrate DRC’s 40th anniversary, each week we will feature the moving story of an individual or group that DRC has helped over its 40 years. After each story is released, it will be archived below in chronologically order of when it occurred in our 40 year history.

Join us in our celebration by making a donation and sharing the stories about your work with your network and in your community.

Thank you for your years of support and for helping us advance and protect the rights of Californians with disabilities.
