WHO WE ARE
Disability Rights Connecticut, Inc. (DRCT) is an advocacy organization dedicated to identifying and eliminating the barriers that people with disabilities face in exercising their civil, legal and human rights. As Connecticut’s protection and advocacy system (P&A), DRCT works to improve the quality of life for individuals with disabilities, their families and our community.
DRCT was incorporated solely for the purpose of being the successor protection and advocacy system for Connecticut. Staff are in the process of developing processes and policies, hiring additional staff and of course, responding to people with disabilities, families, policymakers, guardians/conservators and others concerned about disability issues. Please contact us with questions or issues!
DRCT’s mission is to advocate, educate, investigate and pursue legal, administrative, and other appropriate remedies to advance and protect the civil rights of individuals with disabilities to participate equally and fully in all facets of community life in Connecticut.
