Access Living is a cross-disability organization governed and staffed by a majority of persons with disabilities. The organization strives to enhance the opportunities of persons with disabilities to live individualized and satisfying lives. To this end, Access Living undertakes advocacy and service programs that reach the entire spectrum of disability. Access Living’s legal staff provides direct representation, educates people with disabilities about their legal rights, engages in public policy advocacy aimed at affirmatively furthering fair housing, and utilizes systemic impact litigation to protect the rights of low-income Chicagoans with disabilities. Attorneys counsel persons with disabilities about their civil rights and provide representation in cases implicating important disability rights issues.
