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.

Our Mission

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.
