Who We Are

Disability Rights Nebraska is governed by a fifteen member Board of Directors. We also work with advisory groups to get information to help guide our programs. All of the members of the Board and the advisory groups are volunteers. Most of them are people with disabilities or people with a family member who has a disability.
