2019 Disability Rights Advocates NYC Gala

Thank you for supporting DRA’s 2019 gala at New York City’s American Museum of Natural History on October 21, 2019, where we honored Loreen Arbus, Jill Houghton + Disability:IN, and Bank of America with Eagle Awards.

Since opening our doors in New York nine years ago, DRA has been working towards transforming the city’s sidewalks, theaters, taxis, emergency planning, polling places, and the list goes on. We’re proud of these important victories and there is still so much to accomplish. 

We raised $450,000 to support DRA’s work to ensure New Yorkers ALL have access to education, police stations, juvenile justice, and even the MTA!  Your support allows DRA to wage important civil rights battles—so that we ALL have a fair shot at participating equally in society.

DRA is extremely grateful for our generous event sponsors. If you were unable to attend, you can still support DRA’s mission by making a donation.

Please enjoy our collection of pictures from the event, and this video recapping DRA’s impact and successes in New York City:
