Please join us for a fun evening with delicious appetizers, locally produced beer & wine, and a silent auction supporting Disability Rights Washington.
Disability Rights Washington will present the Breaking Barriers Awards in Advocacy, Public Policy, and Business.
This past year, DRW has been a key member of the De-Escalate Campaign Leadership team and as such, is the only member representing the rights of and issues affecting people with disabilities. DRW addresses the criminalization of mental illness on various fronts including improving the conditions, treatment, services, and reentry for people with disabilities who are incarcerated in our state’s jails and prisons.
Since 1974, Disability Rights Washington (DRW) has been fighting to advance the dignity, equality, and self-determination of people with disabilities. As the only organization in the state focused solely on the legal rights of people with disabilities, DRW's work is critical to the over 900,000 people in Washington who live with a disability and have nowhere left to turn when the system fails them.
Federal grants fund a significant amount of DRW's budget and in these uncertain times, DRW's annual fundraiser is essential to helping protect the rights of Washingtonians with disabilities. We measure the success of our event not just in the dollars we raise, but in the awareness we raise around issues that impact people with disabilities and our work to address these issues.
