AdvocacyDenver believes that all people with disabilities are defined by their own strengths, abilities, and inherent value — not by their disability.
AdvocacyDenver believes that people with disabilities are entitled to the respect, dignity, equality, safety, and security accorded to other members of society, and are equal before the law.
AdvocacyDenver believes that people with disabilities belong in the community and have fundamental moral, civil, and constitutional rights to be fully included and actively participate in all aspects of society.
AdvocacyDenver believes in self-determination and self-advocacy. People with disabilities, with appropriate resources and supports, can make decisions about their own lives and must be heard on issues that affect their well-being.
AdvocacyDenver believes that society in general and AdvocacyDenver in particular benefit from the contributions of people with diverse personal characteristics (including but not limited to race, ethnicity, religion, age, geographic location, sexual orientation, gender, and type of disability).
