Advocates for Individuals with Disabilities Fight Against Disability Discrimination

January 22, 2017

Organization Provides Immediate Charitable Assistance to Those in Need

Discrimination by organizations against individuals with disabilities is all too common in the U.S.  It is important for people with disabilities to seek support in standing up against businesses that create barriers preventing or violating their civil rights. It is also all too common that many Americans with disabilities go without items that they need, which thereby prevents them from living their lives freely and actively. As Civil Rights Champions, Advocates for Individuals with Disabilities (AID.org) was formed in order to improve the lives of individuals with disabilities by providing opportunities and removing discriminatory barriers, as well as offering charitable gift donations to those in need.

By spearheading a rapid and widespread wave of compliance through educational and affirmative enforcement actions, AID.org brings non-complaint public accommodations into ADA compliance. They also act as a self-funding catalyst for the charitable foundation. AID.org helps fill the insurance gap for individuals with disabilities that are in need of medical equipment in addition to providing assistance to not only improve their quality of life, but also to empower individuals and prevent embarrassment. This inspiration comes from direct, first hand personal knowledge and frustration with the outright discrimination and abuse that people living with disabilities face. The possibility of arriving to a public location and not being able to enter because of an obstructing curb, a nonexistent ramp, or no space to remove a wheelchair from a car affects individuals with disabilities on a daily basis.

AID.org has found approximately 95% of public accommodations that do not have ADA compliant parking lots, therefore not accepting patronage from each and every person, regardless of their individual personal limitations. Although many public organizations may be unaware of their own violations, they cannot simply claim ignorance for breaking the law, with ADA laws being in full force and effect for over 25 years.

AID.org’s foundation is a growing resource for any individual with a disability looking to receive help with various issues relating to their disability or compelling needs, whether the assistance includes wheelchair access, medical equipment, or much more. AID.org aims to help improve the lives of three to four individuals with disabilities per day.

The nationwide mission of AID.org is to improve the lives of individuals with disabilities of all types as well as advance equal rights and opportunities by removing barriers. The foundation strives every day to achieve their goals and be a shining example of civil rights leaders in this day and age. Their dedication is resulting in improving the lives of those with disabilities, and the elimination of discrimination of tens of thousands of these people. With their rapidly spreading, multi-state presence representing people with disabilities whose civil rights have been violated, AID.org is quickly causing a wave of compliance and equal access across the nation. Their determination to get the word out about their services and benefits makes them a strikingly devoted source and advocate for individuals with disabilities looking to receive equal accommodations within commercial locations, as well as assistance with day to day struggles.

Being fully managed by volunteers, everyone working for Advocates for Individuals with Disabilities has a passion for the work that the foundation does.  No job is small or insignificant.  Each and every person shares a relentless effort to advance the time that all businesses will become accessible to each and every individual.  Workers send internal emails, share post ideas on Facebook at the AID Foundation or have on the fly meetings to publically share the stories that are making a difference in the lives of the people we serve.

AID.org believes that discriminating against individuals with disabilities by refusing service or creating barriers that prevent and violate the rights of them is no different than doing so to a person of different gender, different race, anyone of minority, or any other protected class. The foundation strongly and aggressively fights this type of discrimination and is inspired to do so each and every day. AID.org changes lives, giving people with disabilities independence, mobility, pride, and a quality of life through their continuous charitable efforts and mission.
