Mission:
MDRC cultivates disability pride and strengthens the disability movement by recognizing disability as a natural and beautiful part of human diversity while collaborating to dismantle all forms of oppression.

Vision: MDRC envisions a world where people with disabilities:
  • Live full lives within the community with equal rights, equity and opportunities.
  • Are valued as essential and vital members of the community.
  • Can be their full selves, in all their identities, in all aspects of their lives
  • Have space for self-discovery, to cultivate community, and to develop pride
MDRC's work is rooted in intersectional justice, disability community and disability pride.

We challenge violence including racism, classism, sexism, sizeism, homophobia, transphobia, ageism, ableism or other forms of oppression.
