The National Disability Leadership Alliance (NDLA) is a national cross-disability coalition, led by disability groups run by persons with disabilities, with support from allies to build a strong and unified cross-disability movement so that we, as individuals with disabilities, have the power to shape national policies, politics, media, and culture.
To tell authentic, accessible stories that empower our community to advocate for disability rights.
Our Values Human Rights
We are rooted in rights because we believe all people deserve equal rights, and our work is dedicated to the people, communities and causes that seek to guarantee those rights for everyone, everywhere.
We believe storytelling is how audiences are educated and energized. In the spirit of “nothing about us without us,” the stories we tell must be authentic representations of the people and communities we serve.
We are dedicated to making content accessible and creative at the same time. All of our creative content is made with maximum accessibility in mind so that as many of our audience members as possible can engage with the content.
Our content supports efforts to defend and advocate for the rights of people with disabilities and empowers our audience to create change through online and offline advocacy.
