Not Without Us is working for equality for all kids and adults with all disabilities through civic change. The core of our strategy is deliberate democracy for disability empowerment – we must change our systems, politics, and culture to be more welcoming and inclusive of both disabled adults and children.

Our initial focus was on kids with disabilities – and they continue to be a priority. But in order to achieve equality for kids with disabilities, we must join together with disabled adults – they are both our partners and our children’s future.

The sky is the limit if we embrace…

  • inclusion, not segregation,
  • compassion, not condescension, &
  • high expectations, not concern.
