Who Are We?

Since 1972, Disability Rights Washington has been fighting to advance the dignity, equality, and self-determination of people with disabilities. Disability Rights Washington works to pursue justice on matters related to human and legal rights. Our work is critical to the over 900,000 people in Washington who live with a disability and have nowhere left to turn when the system fails them. Disability Rights Washington is the only organization in the State focused solely on the legal rights of people with disabilities. Federal grants fund approximately 50% of Disability Rights Washington's budget and in these uncertain times, Disability Rights Washington’s annual fundraiser is critical to helping protect the rights of Washingtonians with disabilities. We measure the success of our event not just in the dollars we raise, but in the awareness we raise around issues that impact people with disabilities, and our work to address these issues.

Why Sponsor?

In 2016, Disability Rights Washington held its first public fundraiser, and it was a huge success with more than 100 guests and raising over $35,000. In 2017, we are challenging ourselves to increase attendance to 200 guests and raise at least $50,000. Anticipated attendance is 150-200 people including lawyers and other professionals in Seattle, along with Disability Rights Washington staff and board members.
