Advocating Your Rights

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.

When the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was signed into law in 1990 it guaranteed equal opportunity for individuals with disabilities in public accommodations, employment, transportation, state, and local government services and telecommunications.

We are protected by several other laws, including the Fair Housing Act, Air Carrier Access Act, Civil Rights of Institutionalized Persons Act, Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), Rehabilitation Act, and Architectural Barriers Act (ABA).

If you feel you are being discriminated against because you experience a disability, contact the League of Human Dignity.
