Disability Action Center NW

Equal Rights Center (ERC)

With holiday shopping in full swing, the Equal Rights Center (ERC) wants to hear from people with disabilities about their shopping experiences! Have you had difficulty shopping because of accessibility problems? Narrow aisles? High counters? Entrances with stairs? Inaccessible point of sale machines? If you have experienced these or other access problems, please contact the ERC Disability Rights Program today at (202) 234-3062 or email

The Equal Rights Center is a national non-profit civil rights organization dedicated to promoting equal opportunity in housing, employment, disability rights, immigrant rights, and access to public accommodations and government services. The ERC engages in cutting edge investigation techniques and is one of the few organizations in the United States which, when necessary, engages in comprehensive civil-rights enforcement for all protected classes under both federal and local law. Each year, the ERC advances civil rights and helps thousands of individuals through a comprehensive approach including counseling, civil rights testing and investigations, and education and outreach activities.

Are you a member of the ERC? If not, please consider joining today! Our members are our greatest source of input on important issues and we strive to keep our members educated about important issues in civil rights. While we have 4 levels of membership, general membership is free. To join, please visit our website.

Best wishes for a wonderful holiday season!

Yours truly,

Robyn Powell
