Description:

Founded in 1982, the mission of the National Organization on Disability (NOD) is “to expand the participation and contribution of America’s 54 million men, women and children with disabilities in all aspects of life.” From their homepage, visitors can delve into a number of their resources, such as summaries of the organization’s own advocacy work that deals with such themes as community involvement, economic participation, and creating an environment that is supportive for those with a broad range of disabilities. The site also contains important information for community leaders, such as summaries of projects developed by the NOD and its partners on topics such as making religious facilities more accessible. The site is rounded out by a section designed for the media that the general user will appreciate as well, as it contains a number of basic reports and surveys on disabled persons and general press releases.
