Sustain Our Abilities is dedicated to conquering climate change, tackling climate-related health impacts, and expanding climate justice for people with disabilities through education, organizing, research and advocacy. We work to bring people with and without disabilities together to transform climate adaptation and mitigation in ways that improve the independence, health and well-being of people with and without disabilities. SOA is committed to building bridges between stakeholders – including disability nonprofits and activists; climate change organizations; medical and rehabilitation professionals; government agencies; and other interested parties – as a key strategy to expand disability climate justice.
What We Do
SOA educates the public and relevant stakeholders on the intersection of climate, health, and disability. Our educational efforts include in person presentations, webinars, workshops, conferences, creating educational materials, and more.
