DRA – The Next 25 Years
Last night in New York, DRA’s Gala at the American Museum of Natural History was a night to remember! Thank you to everyone who supported and attended this extraordinary event. As those who attended heard, we have, since opening our doors in New York nine years ago, 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 investment enables DRA to continue tackling the systemic, emergent, issues preventing Sasha, Rebecca, Dustin, echo and millions of other people with disabilities from participating in all this great city has to offer. Your support allows DRA to wage important civil rights battles—so that we ALL have a fair shot at participating equally in society.
DRA’s high-impact legal work requires time, talent, and resources. There are many ways you can help:
Give: We are very close to raising funds to meet our $50,000 matching grant. If you didn’t get to participate in the text-to-pledge campaign last night, there’s still time! Text your pledge to 646-679-2372 today.
