Since the early 80s, ADAPT has been a national network of activists with disabilities that employs nonviolent civil disobedience to demand changes in policies that exclude people with disabilities from American society. After winning "the right to ride"—a national struggle for accessible public transportation—ADAPT is now fighting policies which lock people with disabilities away in nursing homes and other institutions. ADAPT members have helped thousands of people with disabilities get out of institutions to live autonomously in their own homes and communities.
