Who We Are
Disability Rights California is a nonprofit agency that advances the human and legal rights of persons with disabilities. Disability Rights California began protecting the rights of Californians with disabilities in 1978. We now provide services to people with disabilities under eight federal programs--the Developmentally Disabled Assistance and Bill of Rights (PADD) Act; the Protection and Advocacy for Individuals with Mental Illness (PAIMI) Act; the Protection and Advocacy of Individual Rights (PAIR) Act; the Protection and Advocacy for Beneficiaries of Social Security (PABSS) Act; the Assistive Technology (AT) Act of 1998; the Protection and Advocacy Traumatic Brain Injury (PATBI) act; the Protection and Advocacy Voting Access (PAVA) act; and the Client Assistance Program (CAP). 
 
Under a contract with California's Department of State Hospitals, Disability Rights California operates the California Office of Patients' Rights (COPR)--to advocate for the rights of people who have a psychiatric disability or emotional impairment. 
 
Disability Rights California operates the Office of Clients' Rights Advocacy (OCRA) under a contract with California's Department of Developmental Services. OCRA provides clients' rights advocacy to individuals with developmental disabilities who are clients of California's 21 regional centers.
