A Bay Area grassroots disability rights activist organization committed to defending the human and civil rights of people with disabilities.
We take our name from the 1999 Olmstead Supreme Court ruling, which declared that people with disabilities have the right to live in the community, and that placing us in nursing homes or other institutions against our will when we are capable of living in the community amounts to segregation based on disability.
We engage in nonviolent direct action and civil disobedience, focusing (so far) primarily on the California budget cuts to programs serving people with disabilities, seniors, and poor people.
We are a cross-disability organization and an all-volunteer group which relies on modest community donations to fund its work.
