Join us to improve educational opportunities and outcomes for persons with disabilities.

Pride, respect, opportunity, inclusion.

We’re working to impact positive change in education, employment, housing and other essential life components for persons with disabilities by improving transparency, access and accountability in systems and processes, and your support will make a difference!

We would love your help to:

  • Educate our policy makers, state and local leaders, and our community.
  • Develop blueprints for legislation, resolutions, and individual action to make change happen.
  • Lobby to hold our leaders accountable.
  • Incubate new leaders and activists to make the change that must happen become a reality.

A not-for-profit with teeth

Not Without Us is 501(c)(4) non-profit corporation. Your contribution is NOT tax deductible, as with a 501(c)(3), but it is very important.

Why support Not Without Us?

Because changing our systems, politics, and culture in regard to the disabilities community is imperative, and our work is making a difference. 

There are a lot of wonderful groups advocating for individuals and providing educational and other services. We support them and invite you to do the same. But, after 40 years of formal legal protections and practical failed outcomes, it is clear we need make real political and social change.

We rely on sustaining support of individuals like you to support our goal of better outcomes for all kids with all disabilities through our strategy of deliberate democracy.
