Disability Rights IOWA aims to defend and promote the human and legal rights of Iowans who have disabilities and mental illness. We promote safety, opportunity, access, and self-determination for all Iowans through a program of:

  • Self-advocacy education, information and referral
  • Non-legal advocacy
  • Legal and systems advocacy

Our legal and systems advocacy aims to resolve major issues called priorities. View our current Areas of Focus, or suggest Areas of Focus.
