About This Priority

Whether a person with an intellectual or developmental disability can live, work and thrive in their community depends, at least in part, on the extent to which their community prioritizes social and economic justice. In essence, the just society we demand is one where people with disabilities and everyone else have the same opportunities and privileges to be safe, find community, build wealth and get ahead.
