Confining Ourselves: Where’s the Outrage? « A WheelchairJunkie.com

"Many of us involved in disability advocacy dream of a day when those with disabilities in the U.S. unite and form a serious, influential constituency – one much like the NAACP or AARP. ... if we simply united as a body of millions, solidifying our collective voice on a national level, issues like detrimentally-low mobility and in-home care funding would be resolved in an instant – our influence on elected officials would be so great that they'd address our needs to no end."

ADDENDUM:

I was recently provided these resources:

Check out www.aapd.org or www.dc-aapd.org. They are they strongest cross disability US group I have worked with. There is also the international World Institute of Disability.
