Disability Rights New Jersey is the state’s designated protection and advocacy agency under federal law. We advance the human, civil, and legal rights of persons with disabilities and promote their self-determination, independence, productivity, and integration into all facets of community life. To ensure that our limited resources are used to address issues of importance to people with disabilities, we are seeking input from people with disabilities, their families, professionals, health care and service providers, and the general public to guide in determining our priorities.
