Supporting communication rights for those who cannot rely on speech to be understood

Supporting communication rights for those who cannot rely on speech to be understood

CommunicationFIRST is the only disability-led organization dedicated to protecting and advancing the civil rights of the more than 5 million people of all ages in the United States who, due to disability or other condition, are unable to rely on speech alone to be understood. Our mission is to educate the public, advocate for policy change, and engage the justice system to protect and advance the human and civil rights of our historically marginalized community.
