Abilities in Motion actively advocates for federal and state laws, programs, and procedures that benefit all individuals with disabilities.   AIM participates in national and local awareness campaigns for a variety of causes affiliated with disabilities.  AIM meets with local, state, and federal legislators to promote and advocate for the Americans with Disabilities Act, relevant budget issues, and disability-friendly bills making their way through Congress.

AIM also works for change on an individual level.   We provide consumers with self-advocacy resources and training to become their own advocates.  Additionally, AIM conducts disability awareness outreach and trainings for school districts, businesses, professional conferences, and public facilities.
