LRI was designed by the disability community, for disability community, as a clearinghouse for information on maximizing the independent living of people with disabilities in the Philadelphia Area. LRI advises people to live with a “rights bearing attitude”. Contained here are several essays and articles to inform the community about their rights.
Still all too frequently, the disabled individual encounters barriers to successful independent living. As unintentional as they may be, barriers exist because most of the general public does not understand that disabled people are equal. The business community is sometimes ignorant or misinformed of their obligations to provide equal access under the law.
