Disability Lead is a network of people with disabilities who use our power to create an equitable and inclusive society.

We accomplish this by Uplifting Disability Power, Influencing and Activating Change, and Making Our Vision Real.

Influencing & Activating Change

We research and communicate the impact of leaders with disabilities; we influence disability inclusion; and we convene peers, partners and communities to reveal solutions that create equity and inclusion.

Introducing Collab, A Space for Racial and Disability Justice

Today we launch the Collab, a space for people who work on and care about racial equity and for people who work on and care about disability justice to think and work together. Our goal is to provide a platform and community where members can build relationships, learn from each other, and collectively tackle problems and issues that face our communities.
