Disability Rights Ohio adopts new Mission, Vision, and Values
October 6, 2022
The Disability Rights Ohio Board of Directors recently approved and adopted new mission, vision, and values statements as part of a larger overall visioning exercise to better define and understand the organization's work and purpose.
To advocate for an equitable Ohio for people with disabilities.
Voices elevated. People empowered. Equity achieved.
JUSTICE AND DIGNITY
We believe that disability rights are human rights, and that people with disabilities should be free from harm, prejudice, and discrimination.
Those whom we represent — Ohioans with disabilities — direct all aspects of our organization.
We embrace our role to protect and advocate, and we are driven by a desire to see all Ohioans with disabilities flourish.
Our teams empower our constituents to make their own decisions, and to be vocal and
determined in their efforts, even when systemic forces create barriers.
ACCESS AND OPPORTUNITIES
We recognize that people with disabilities have many identities and are often forgotten. We
celebrate their uniqueness and seek to reduce disparities to ensure equitable resources for all.
