The Tuesday after Thanksgiving is #GivingTuesday. This day encourages people to support nonprofit organizations by spreading the word on social media using #GivingTuesday. Disability Rights California is joining this global day of giving to raise awareness about our mission of ensuring people with disabilities have equal rights and opportunities.

We’re asking you to donate November 28 so Disability Rights California can help people like Irene, a recent high school graduate who has autism. She is the first girl with autism to be on the varsity cheer squad at her school and she’s won gold medals on the Inclusive Track & Field Team.

Disability Rights California helped Irene obtain Department of Rehabilitation services to attend a two-year program for training in her chosen field and independent living and pre-employment transition services.

When Irene completes the program, she expects to transfer to UCLA’s Pathway program, which gives young adults with intellectual disabilities the opportunity to study and live on campus as college students.

With your contribution, Disability Rights California can continue to advocate for the rights of people with disabilities.
