Our mission is to help make positive change for all persons with disabilities through changing systems, policies, politics, and power. ..And the best way to do that is work with other disability focused groups and individuals.

We firmly believe that the best way to improve outcomes for persons with disabilities is to become active leaders and participants in all political, civic, and community systems and processes.

Rights, services, inclusion – all come from engagement and power

  • If you care about disability issues or support disabled individuals or groups, but don’t want to deal with the politics, systems, bureaucracy, and such – we can be your partner.
  • If you want to build or grow your own capability to deal with systems and politics (either as an individual or group) we can advice, train, and support you.
  • If what you are working on transcends the issues of just your organization, we can work with you to build alliances and coalitions to make change happen.

What does it cost?

Our team has over five decades of expertise making change happen in the public, private, and non-profit sectors. We are in this for the long haul – we believe that both our group and our partners need to be self-sufficient. Our work is either provided on a fixed price or, for certain partnerships, a revenue share model.

Satisfaction Guaranteed – or your money back

We also understand that some individuals and groups may not be in a position to fund our services, so we’re hapoy to offer a range of scholarships, fundraising partnership opportunities, and various tailored fee options.

Built to make change happen

Not Without Us is a 501(c)(4) non-profit organization. This status gives us much greater freedom to engage in the political process than a 501(c)(3). We can endorse candidates, create scorecards for legislators, and otherwise hit our representatives and leaders where it counts.
