Thank you for all your past support of the Michigan Disability Rights Coalition. Because of your generosity, we have been able to make a significant impact for disability justice.
Parents Promoting Pride (P3) is a learning community where parents of a child with a disability discuss various topics relating to disability pride. Twenty-four have completed the program with great success. As one parent shared, “I need to keep telling myself my daughter is perfect, and stop apologizing for the things she does that are probably not a big deal to people. Find my pride for her disability.”
Our Navigator Program under the Affordable Care Act continues to assist people access quality and affordable health insurance. Those who previously had no medical coverage can now access the care they need to get and stay healthy.
Partners Against Violence and Injustice in Michigan(PAVIM), our grant through the Office of Violence Against Women, works to create an attitudinal, environmental, and emotionally safe and accessible atmosphere and services for adults with disabilities who have experienced domestic or sexual violence.
