We're a civil rights organization that has been fighting for equality for people with disabilities since 1970.

We are a civil rights organization committed to ending discrimination against people with disabilities - all disabilities. We fight to eliminate the barriers that prevent us from enjoying full equality in American society. Founded in 1970, DIA is a democratic, not-for-profit, tax-exempt, membership organization. DIA consists primarily of and is directed by people with disabilities.
We believe in the motto, "Nothing about us, without us!"
