We have big news! We’re very pleased to announce that we have a new look and a new logo! You’ll see this new style anywhere we’re out in public, like here on our website as well as on Facebook, Twitter, and now - Instagram! Very soon, you’ll see it in all of our communications and branded materials too. We believe this new look better reflects our vision that people with disabilities live independent and fully inclusive lives and are recognized by society as equal.
