3.2. Disability Rights in California (June 20 2011)

New video and publications available about rights of Californians with disabilities

Sacramento, CA A new Youtube video, a weekly electronic newsletter, and a bestsellers publication CD have just been produced by Disability Rights California to reach people with disabilities with information about their rights and related services.

As the state's social safety net frays, Disability Rights California (DRC) is making a concerted effort to reach out to the hundreds of thousands of children, youths and adults who need disability advocacy and legal services to become or remain independent, or access education, health or other critical services.

Designated the state's protection and advocacy system for Californians with disabilities, we offer free legal and advocacy services to those who need them to resolve disability-related issues. In 2010, the most frequently requested services concerned: obtaining regional center services for people with developmental disabilities; access to education, healthcare, and information about benefits; how to preserve autonomy and privacy; and fight against abuse.

In an effort to get the word out about our free services and trainings about rights, we produced a variety of products, including this 6 minute YouTube video.
