2024 Annual Gala

On the heels of our groundbreaking coast to coast anniversary gala, Disability Rights Advocates is thrilled to invite you to the 2024 DRA Annual Gala. As the leading national nonprofit disability rights legal center, we are thrilled to include in-person gatherings in New York, Chicago and San Francisco as well as a livestream that gives us the opportunity to welcome our entire community of supporters – nationally!

From Philadelphia to Seattle, Indiana to Tennessee, Baltimore to Los Angeles, and everywhere in between. We continue to come together to powerfully demonstrate our strength and vision. Details on our event are included below.

We hope you will join us to support DRA and be a part of this very special night: Wednesday, November 13, 2024.

If DRA’s work to bring about accessible transportation, the rights of incarcerated people, equal access to healthcare, and more, is meaningful to you and you’d like to see it continue, I invite you to our 2nd Annual Nationwide Gala. We’ve got beautiful waterfront venues in San Francisco and New York, a watch party in Chicago, and outstanding honorees. We will, as we do every year, tell the stories of DRA clients who, alongside DRA attorneys, fight for their rights and bring about equality for the millions of us with disabilities across the nation. No matter how you choose to join us—online, in San Francisco, Chicago, or New York, I look forward to seeing you there!
