DRA’s team is busier than ever tackling inequities and bringing about justice for people with disabilities across the nation. To help lead this charge in California, we’re thrilled to welcome Stuart Seaborn back to DRA. Stuart has worked for DRA as an administrator, a lawyer, a Director of Litigation and now, after a short stint away, Stuart is DRA’s Managing Director, Litigation—joining Sid Wolinsky, Michelle Caiola and Kate Hamilton in guiding the organization forward. A seasoned litigator and passionate civil rights advocate, Stuart spoke with Kate Hamilton about what he learned while he was away, DRA’s current work and what is ahead.
On May 16th, we welcomed more than 40 of our supporters to our new, expanded Manhattan offices. Guests enjoyed beautiful artwork (created by people with disabilities and made possible through the generous support of Evan Davis, Stephen and Elizabeth Foresta, Jean Mitchell and Fred Cannon, and Outten & Golden), delicious food, and a wine tasting led by friends from Wheeling Forward.
Thanks to your generous support, DRA is now equipped to accommodate new growth, better serve our clients, and ensure all New Yorkers have equal opportunities. See below for more images of the new space!
Now is the time to show your support for DRA by becoming a sponsor of our 25th Anniversary Gala! The gala is DRA’s annual fundraising dinner, celebrating disability rights heroes and raising critical funds to support DRA’s ongoing work. The soiree, which will take place on Thursday, October 25th at the Four Seasons Hotel in San Francisco, will help DRA establish, in perpetuity, the Larry Paradis Legacy Fund. Event sponsors and guests will enjoy conversation, drinks and appetizers overlooking the San Francisco skyline followed by a seated, sumptuous dinner and inspiring stage presentation.
