Celebrating Black History Month

We celebrate Black History Month to recognize and honor the contributions made. Those who came before us & those who are with us today making an impact on Disability Rights, Accessibility, and Black History.

To celebrate Black History Month, we are excited to share stories recognizing the contributions of role models with disabilities gathered by the National Disability Rights Network (NDRN). Today and every day, we celebrate YOU!

Claudia Gordan

The first Deaf Black female lawyer in the United States, Claudia is an avid advocate for greater equity and meaningful engagement.

Anil Lewis

“We need to make every single thing accessible to every person with a disability.”
