Rights of People with Disabilities

Promoting the Rights of People with Disabilities

The Islamic Society of North America is a Steering Committee member of the Interfaith Disability Advocacy Coalition (IDAC), which seeks to mobilize the religious community to speak out and take action on disability policy issues with Congress, the President and Administration, and society at large. IDAC is a diverse, nonpartisan coalition of religious and religiously affiliated organizations whose core spiritual values affirm the rights and dignity of people with disabilities.  As a project of the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD), IDAC brings the powerful and prophetic voice of the faith community to the 21st Century disability agenda. IDAC’s 2012 public priorities consist of urging the federal government to enable and expand opportunities for people with disabilities for independence and community living, employment, education, and access to health care.
