The Disability Inclusion Fund is pleased to announce that Center for Self Advocacy Inc and 33 other organizations received funding for strengthening disability inclusion, rights, and justice. The Disability Inclusion Fund at Borealis Philanthropy is a 5-year Fund that supports U.S. groups run by and for people with disabilities to lead transformational change.
This group of organizations reflect the incredible wisdom and ingenuity of grassroots disability movement leaders. They include organizations from across the country doing a broad range of work, from deaf theatre and disability dance, to mental health services, to work at the intersection of racial, disability, and climate justice. Together, these organizations make it clear that disability justice is central to and cross-cutting with many other movements working toward freedom and liberation.
