Site Summary: "THE MISSION: To secure and advance the civil rights of people with disabilities".

"WHAT IS DREDF? The Disability Rights Education and Defense Fund, Inc., (DREDF) is the leading national law and policy center in disability civil rights. DREDF was founded in 1979 by a unique alliance of adults with disabilities and parents of children with disabilities. DREDF's name was chosen to associate and align with the tradition of other civil rights legal defense funds, starting with the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund."

"WHY A DEFENSE FUND FOR DISABILITY RIGHTS? There are 49 million people with disabilities living in the United States today. The largest minority in America, people with disabilities are the poorest and least educated. Two-thirds of all working-age Americans with disabilities are unemployed. Hundreds of thousands of children with disabilities are isolated in segregated "handicapped-only" schools or receive inferior educations. Such economic and social disenfranchisement is not an inevitable consequence of the physical and mental limitations imposed by disability; it results from discrimination. Discrimination against people with disabilities occurs in every aspect of daily life."

"You probably have a friend, co-worker, family member or neighbor who has cancer, epilepsy, AIDS, or who uses a wheelchair - and who has experienced discrimination on the job, at school or in your community because of that disability.." Quoted from the web site
