Our Purpose

Our Purpose

To provide a space to discuss the latest news, resources, and successes involving the disabled community while highlighting the difficulties they commonly face. We do this with a hope of invoking positive changes for the community as a whole while sharing content, websites, videos, and stories developed by those with disabilities. We hope that our contributions can help bring important issues like accessibility and disability benefits to the forefront at both the national and local levels.

Despite being the wealthiest and most economically successful country ever to exist, America still falls short of its responsibilities to our most vulnerable who desperately need and deserve an opportunity to participate in and experience what society has to offer. This problem is frequently overlooked because those affected are too few and lack the economic capacity to lobby for change on their behalf, despite the affected groups comprising those from all races, ages, creeds, and religions. We are far behind the rest of the developed world when it comes to properly caring for our disabled communities and should look to countries like Japan to emulate when devising solutions. Expanding accessibility for the disabled community will not be solved independently or by “the invisible hand” of the free market economy. We must solve the problem of accessibility through compassion, awareness, and legislation.
