Our systems advocacy team works to affect state and local policy to create choices and freedom for self-determination for people with disabilities in Ohio through a combination of community organizing, policy analysis, and legal work. While our Ability Center Programs provide resources and supports that allow people with disabilities to live, work, and socialize within a fully accessible community, systems advocacy seeks to create systems change at a local, state, and federal level to protect and exercise our human rights.


The Ability Center advocacy team is divided into four main areas of action:

  1. Policy Advocacy and Analysis
  2. Community Organizing
  3. ADA Government Compliance
  4. ADA Information, Surveys, and Trainings
