The Disabled Rights Action Committee partners with ADAPT Utah. We share ADAPT’s vision of a future in which no person with a disability is unnecessarily institutionalized. In recent years, ADAPT has focused its efforts on the passage of the Disability Integration Act (DIA). The DIA would require that the funds that are now funneled to nursing homes be made available to individuals to purchase the attendant care, community services, and adaptive equipment necessary to remain in their own homes, surrounded by friends and family.
Every six months, members of ADAPT Utah join with over five hundred other individuals with disabilities from all over the country for actions that further these goals. At least one of these actions each year takes place in Washington DC.
