The National Black Disability Coalition (NBDC) is a response to the need for Blacks with Disabilities in America to organize around issues of mutual concern and use our collective strength to address disability issues with an emphasis on people who live in poverty.
The goals of the NBDC are:
- To promote UNITY among Black people with disabilities, our families and our communities
- To advance EQUITY within the disability movement and our communities
- To foster OPPORTUNITY for Black people with disabilities
We believe that Black people with disabilities must unite to obtain and secure the rights and privileges of full participation in our communities. Using strategies from the civil rights movement, NBDC seeks to achieve collective power and inclusion for Black people with disabilities within our families, faith organizations and the greater disability community.
