What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Disability Rights Litigation Program

The Disability Rights Litigation Program litigates impact discrimination cases that address the civil rights of people with all types of disabilities, physical, sensory, learning, mental and intellectual. This includes class action and individual cases involving cutting-edge legal issues in the area of disability rights. Our cases challenge discriminatory practices by government agencies, businesses, and educational institutions. Examples include: inaccessible newly constructed or altered buildings, refusal to provide sign language interpreters or alternative format materials, inaccessible government programs, discriminatory insurance and health care systems, inaccessible transportation services, and policies that exclude people with disabilities.

Cancer Legal Resource Center: Founded in 1997, the Cancer Legal Resource Center (CLRC) provides information and education to cancer patients, their families, and health care professionals, about the rights and legal issues confronting a diagnosis of cancer. The CLRC has access to a panel of volunteer attorneys and other professionals willing to assist those who need individual representation. The CLRC is the only entity providing this type of specific service in the United States and its toll-free number is the referral source for the American Cancer Society. Last year, the program’s national hotline received more than 4,000 phone calls and its website received more than 8,000 views.

Caregivers

In response to the legal needs of the disability community, the Community Advocacy Program, works with law student externs and volunteers to provide legal information to DRLC callers with disability-related issues or disputes so that they may explore all available options. The intake line also functions as the intake mechanism for the DRLC, which utilizes a software intake database and case tracking system. Callers receive resources that will connect them with relevant service providers, and help with self-advocacy. The CAP Coordinator works closely with the Legal Director to identify systemic issues appropriate for DRLC impact litigation. In addition, the DRLC provides legal, but non-litigation, advocacy on discrete issues confronted by our callers.

The DRLC’s toll free number is 1-866-912-8193.
