Disability Rights & Housing

Disability Rights advocates ARE housing advocates

People with disabilities are often “priced out” of stable, affordable, accessible housing.

People with disabilities experience housing discrimination and few housing units in the U.S. are accessible.

“Independent living philosophy emphasizes consumer control, the idea that people with disabilities are the best experts on their own needs, having crucial and valuable perspective to contribute and deserving of equal opportunity to decide how to live, work, and take part in their communities, particularly in reference to services that powerfully affect their day-to-day lives and access to independence.”
