As advocates for effective public policy, we protect the rights of all residents of and visitors to the District of Columbia, regardless of their physical or mental ability.
A District of Columbia in which all people have equal access to the enjoyment of all rights, privileges and opportunities.
Strategies and Goals
The District of Columbia’s Commission on Persons with Disabilities will work towards these strategies and achieve these goals. Our attention will be directed to six areas of need concentrating on:
Communication and Assistive Technology
General Community Issues
The Commission serves as an advisory body to inform and advise the District on programs, services, facilities, and activities that impact the lives of residents with disabilities in the District of Columbia. The Commission is committed to enhancing the image, status, inclusion, and quality of life for all District of Columbia residents, visitors, and employees with disabilities, and ensuring that they have the same rights and opportunities as those without disabilities.
