The Disability Rights Legal Center (DRLC) is a nonprofit organization that supports the rights of people with disabilities through education, advocacy and litigation. The DRLC strives to set the standard for the enforcement of disability rights and in educating the public that “access is equality.” The organization advocates for people with physical disabilities, emotional and mental health disabilities, terminal illness, and children and students with disabilities.

Roosevelt Dinner at Fox Studios and to honor Apple, Sesame Workshop, Exceptional Minds and Helen Hunt for their outstanding work in helping to further DRLC’s mission of inclusion through their actions. DRLC is deeply grateful to our community and to our Board Members, including Andrea Oxman and the law firm of Klinedinst PC, who stand with us tonight to support our vision of a more inclusive society.”
