HELP THE LEAGUE GET THE WORD OUT
As a non-profit organization with a limited budget, we rely heavily on our friends in the media, the medical community and the human services industry to help us get the word out. In this section you’ll find events, news and announcements to help keep you apprised of league activities.
After more than 30 years of successfully promoting independent living for persons with disabilities, we had hoped to become a household name by now. Too often, no one really thinks about us until they really need us.
If you are a satisfied consumer, you are our most reliable promotional spokesperson. You can help others live more independently by telling them about our services or by sharing this website with them. If this is your first visit to the League web site, please come back often to learn about the League and its many activities.

Find Out Your Benefits
Throughout our history, members of the League of Human Dignity have influenced state legislation and city policy on accessibility and disability rights issues. We are also prepared to advocate with you on a personal level and to help you advocate for yourself. We want to be sure you receive the services, accommodation—and respect—you deserve. If you feel you are being discriminated against because you experience a disability, contact the League of Human Dignity.
Find Out Your Rights
The League of Human Dignity believes that all of us have the right to decide where we live, work, and play. At some point in our lives most of us will experience limitations that affect our personal independence. Whether these disabilities are temporary, progressive, or permanent, they should not prevent us from living the lives we choose. In addition to physical, mental, or emotional disabilities, we may also be faced with external barriers.
We believe people who experience disability have the right to expect the same opportunity as anyone else to live, work and play in their communities. They have the same right to access benefits, services, resources and facilities. They have the same right to contribute freely, according to their potential, regardless of their disability. People with disabilities have the right to make their own decisions, to live independently and should never be forced to live in institutions.
