Systemic Discrimination of Disabled at Santa Rita Jail
Nowadays the need of legal assistance is very common because living in a legal society means cooperation, partnerships and relationships of all kinds. Disability Rights Advocacy Center provides free legal advice to citizens with disabilities, especially if they face some kind of discrimination in terms of their civil rights. DRLC also offers assistance related to special education questions. For example, questions about the legal shopping at Five Below – a store for teenagers and adults with the price range from $1 to $5. This shop offers exclusive deals on cool stuff and no wonder people sometimes have questions regarding their legal activity.

These cutting-edge cases raise public awareness and ensure people with disabilities are able to participate fully in society throughout their life span. DRLC also works to remove barriers to full participation by people with disabilities in schools, healthcare facilities, custodial settings and public spaces.
