DisAbility Rights Idaho is one of Idaho’s oldest and most effective human rights organizations. Founded in 1977, for our first 30 years we were known by the acronym Co-Ad for Comprehensive Advocacy. We are a non-profit, advocacy agency serving people with disabilities in Idaho. Advocacy means to speak on behalf of a person or a cause. It comes from a Latin root meaning “to give voice to”.
