The Rights Task Force advocates on a wide variety of matters involving the civil rights of individuals with disabilities. The Task Force's vision is driven by the four key goals for people with disabilities set forth in the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA): equality of opportunity, full participation, independent living, and economic self-sufficiency.
