2015 DRA Eagle & Turkey Awards

Celebrating 2015’s Disability Heroes

Building on last year’s success, DRA is thrilled to announce our 2nd Annual Eagle and Turkey Awards Luncheon.  Thank you to our committed 2015 sponsors!

This fun and unique holiday-themed event will celebrate 25 years of progress with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), spotlight 2015’s disability heroes (Eagles) and expose the Turkeys.  This is a chance for you and your company to demonstrate your support for DRA’s work to protect the civil rights of people with disabilities nation-wide.

Through your support we will build and promote more Eagles (and less Turkeys).

Nominate an Eagle or Turkey

DRA has recognized more than 40 Eagle Awardees since 1997 for their outstanding service to the disability community.  DRA Eagles are businesses, government entities, individuals and organizations who have distinguished themselves by actively working to support people with disabilities.

Turkey Awardees actively discriminate against people with disabilities. Turkeys have failed to respond to multiple complaints or grievances filed against them by DRA (or another similar entity).

Want to nominate a 2015 Eagle or Turkey?  Download DRA’s nominations form, review the criteria and submit your nomination today.

Deadline for all Eagle and Turkey nominations is August 21, 2015.
