MassADAPT is the Massachusetts-based chapter of ADAPT, which is a disability-led, volunteer, disability rights advocacy organization. We started when a group of Boston Center for Independent Living (BCIL) staff, members, and friends joined ADAPT’s national action in Washington, DC, in April of 2013.
Our mission is to expand and increase visibility of disability rights through state and national legislation, such as lobbying for bills. We also educate the public through standouts, events, and organize ourselves to promote disability rights through direct action. Our core belief is that disability rights are human rights.
