ABOUT US

The Victor Pineda Foundation works with communities and leading organizations, teams and agencies to advance access and inclusion through disability justice. We work with people with all types of disabilities to promote and ensure equality, inclusivity, and change through high-impact advocacy, research and training. Our goal is to ensure that all people with disabilities are valued, have access to opportunity, and can live with dignity.

We recognize disability as a key component of diversity, and It is a high priority for us to foster and maintain an inclusive environment where diverse perspectives are welcome and where everyone can feel valued. People of color, particularly Black, brown, and indigenous people with disabilities, are especially impacted by disability rights violations. Therefore, we commit to listen to, honor, reflect, and elevate the voices and participation of cross-disability and cross-movement advocates.

We commit to serve as a partner with culturally and geographically diverse communities of cross-disability and cross-social justice movements to build trust and advocate for radical inclusion through bold approaches to long lasting societal transformation.
