Training and Education

We train and educate people with disabilities and parents of children with disabilities about their rights under state and federal disability rights laws so they can challenge exclusion and discrimination, and advocate effectively for full participation in the lives of their communities. We also educate lawyers, service providers, government officials, and many others about disability civil rights laws and policies. For over fifteen years we have operated a disability rights legal clinic in collaboration with law schools in the San Francisco Bay Area including Boalt Hall School of Law at the University of California, Berkeley.
