We’re an alliance of advocates and groups working to preserve and celebrate Georgia’s disability history. History links us with our past and helps us understand who we are. Through preserving disability history in Georgia we can have:
An improved understanding of the past experiences, conditions, and contributions of Georgians with disabilities and their advocates.
Increased knowledge of historical changes in cultural attitudes towards persons with disabilities and their advocates, along with associated public and institutional responses to the needs, assets and perceived threats associated with disability.
An opportunity to keep history alive through continuing public discussion and reflection on the subject of disability and community.
From families seeking to understand their personal history to researchers searching for answers, having access to disability history resources impacts many people and extends beyond the boundaries of our state. We are each stewards of this rich history and have a role to ensure that it is available for generations to come.
