Welcome to Senior & Disability Action!

We mobilize and educate seniors and people with disabilities to fight for individual rights and social justice. Through individual support and collective action, we work together to create a city and world in which seniors and people with disabilities can live well and safely. See our video below.

 Help us meet our end of year fundraising goals!

Help SDA match a Computer Lab upgrade grant, win Free Muni for seniors and people with disabilities, and fund a Housing Stories Project! We aim to raise $2,500 by December 31, 2014. Please consider a donation of $10-25 to SDA. Please click on the logo on the right to donate.

What will your donation pay for?

  • We need to upgrade our Computer Lab to make it accessible for people with hearing, vision, cognitive, or mobility disabilities, so that all may have the opportunity to communicate with friends and family, research health information, or apply for housing or benefits. The Newhall Foundation has offered us $10,000 for equipment, training and outreach – but only if we raise a $10,000 match! Please help us meet our goal and not gave to give back money needed to connect seniors and people with disabilities.
  • In the new year we can win Free Muni for low-income seniors and people with disabilities! We must reach out and organize seniors and people with disabilities to show the MTA, Mayor Lee and our Board of Supervisors that Free Muni is critical in this time to growing economic disparity to ensure that we can all get to doctor’s appointments and the grocery store and participate in public life.
  • As we continue the fight to stop evictions and displacement of seniors and people with disabilities, it is important to show the face of this issue. Our talented writer/artist Tony Robles skillfully leads storytelling and writing workshops, eliciting rich life stories from people in our community. Help fund a Housing Stories Project to bring together seniors and people with disabilities, shed light on the lives that are so often ignored or forgotten, and develop advocates to effect housing policy change.

Please take part in our end-of-year fundraising drive and donate $10-25 (or more if you are able). All donations are fully tax-deductible. Mail to: 1360 Mission St. #400, SF CA 94103, or click on Donate Now.

Thank you!
