Democrat mascot donkey behind a wheelchair icon - The First Democratic Club in the Country Focusing on Disability Rights

Mission:
The 504 DEMOCRATIC CLUB is a New York City-based coalition of Democrats working towards inclusion of people with disabilities in the political and social fabric of society. Club members hail from all five boroughs, reaching across every conceivable line to include a richly diverse group of people with disabilities, public officials, friends and family who support the concepts set forth in Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.

Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 mandates that all federally funded programs must be accessible to people with disabilities. It is the precursor of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The 504 DEMOCRATIC CLUB was founded in 1983 by disability rights advocates working to elect a Democrat (Mario Cuomo) governor of New York.

This is the only Democratic Club focusing on disability rights in NYC!

We invite you to join with us in working to achieve our goal of equal rights for all.

Your membership will bring us closer to making equality a reality.

JOIN US AND BRING YOUR FRIENDS

We are working towards a more accessible future. We believe the first steps towards full participation lie in encouraging ADA compliance and working with policymakers to effect positive change.

In the 21st Century anything less than an equal place at the table for people with disabilities is unacceptable.

GET INVOLVED AS IF YOUR LIFE DEPENDED ON IT, BECAUSE IT DOES!
