Desert ADAPT
Desert ADAPT is a grassroots disability rights group. With the cry “We Will Ride!” Desert ADAPT started in 1990 with the fight for lifts on buses. In 2006 we had our ADAPT of Texas 21st Anniversary, and in 2008 our national 25th Anniversary. ADAPT’s advocacy led to Sun Metro becoming a fully accessible mainline transit system. Since the 1990 passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act, ADA, ADAPT has turned our main focus to community attendant services. Our new mottos are: “Our Homes, Not Nursing Homes” and “Free Our People.” We tackle other issues as well: Access and the ADA Affordable, accessible, integrated housing Attendant services Better wages & benefits for attendants Curb cuts and community access Transportation (buses, taxis, TNCs – transit network companies (like Lyft, Uber, etc…) And More

Causes: Community Advocacy, Homelessness and Housing, Social Justice

Desert ADAPT has fought for the rights of people woith disabilities at a local, state, and national level.

Our main focus locally has been in ensuring that the city is accessible and inclusive for all people with disabilites.
