We are excited to introduce you to our brand new logo! Since 1983, WID has continued to evolve and grow in our mission to continually advance the rights and opportunities of over one billion people with disabilities. As we usher in a new era of growth, our new logo represents our work coming full circle and a strengthening in our commitment to people with disabilities living with access, safety, employment, and independence.

WID will be debuting a new website in the coming months to commemorate our rebranding initiative!
