The Disability Visibility Project is proud to have the World Institute on Disability as our 43rd media partner! From their website:
The mission of the World Institute on Disability (WID) in communities and nations worldwide is to eliminate barriers to full social integration and increase employment, economic security and health care for persons with disabilities. WID creates innovative programs and tools; conducts research, training, public education and advocacy campaigns; and provides technical assistance.
An internationally recognized public policy center founded in 1983 by leaders of the Independent Living Movement, WID’s program work focuses on issues and problems that directly affect people’s ability to live full and independent lives. A majority of the Board and staff are persons with disabilities.
