A Center for Independent Living
We are excited to announce a new Center for Independent Living coming to Spokane, Washington. INDex stands for Inland Northwest Disability Experience. Our new logo is orange and blue to represent DAC NW colors, as it will start up under the DAC umbrella.
The three intersecting triangles represent the three pillars of the disability movement: Independence, Equity, and Justice. The three triangles join together where we raise the voices of those who are most marginalized – from BIPOC to LGBTQ+, to immigrants or to those in poverty. We recognize that society’s systems of oppression reinforce each other and affect every member of the disability community.
As an organization run by people with disabilities for people with disabilities, INDex will provide peer counseling, support and mentoring. The best advice often comes from those who have already experienced it. INDex will serve five counties in eastern Washington State; Spokane, Pend Oreille, Lincoln, Stevens, and Ferry counties. They will soon begin providing a comprehensive range of services designed to educate, assist, empower and provide resources to the cross-disability community.
You can have the independence you wish, while building a network of friends, colleagues, and advocates.
