Donna Duarte is an educator and advocate who is Deaf and has disabilities. Donna worked for both the San Diego Community College District and the State of California. She served as a member of the Mental Health Advisory Council for Deaf Community Services of San Diego and as a volunteer with multiple organizations throughout Southern California.

She currently divides her time between her family, public speaking engagements, school, volunteer work, and advocacy activities.

Donna is thrilled to be on the Board of Directors of Disability Rights California. She shares, “Working with a group of like-minded people has greater reach and power to affect policy change and improve people’s lives than one person working alone. I look forward to working with the Board of Directors to create positive and lasting changes that will benefit the Californians we serve.”
