“WE CONNECT NOW” WAS CREATED IN 2008
Their Mission – We Connect Now is dedicated to uniting people interested in rights and issues affecting people with disabilities, with particular emphasis on college students and access to higher education and employment issues.
One of the goals of this site is to help college students with disabilities to succeed in their studies by getting the information and support they need, both through resources, links, blogs latest news, studying existing laws and regulation and through personal contacts. Through this website people can also share and read other people’s stories as a source of support and comfort. We Connect Now also wants people using the webpage to take action by writing blogs, hosting an event or becoming involved in politics by knowing about upcoming legislation. Also, every month their webpage will focus on a particular disability or condition to bring visitors more information and support related to their focus of the month. Through the jobs section, they also hope to help empower people with disabilities find employment through job posting and job searching tips. The goal of this site is that people leave it having gained knowledge, a support system and having taken action.
