At Jay Nolan Community Services we are honored to serve members of all races and ethnicities, wherever the need exists. In our 45 years of service, we have always been committed to being agents of change in our community, pursuing equality and justice for all. As citizens in the communities we serve and across the country speak out to demand justice, equity and equality, we are listening and we are learning. We stand with all who seek peace and the equal opportunity to the pursuit of happiness.
For those who are looking for more places to put their money towards helping Black causes, below is a list of some organizations, compiled with the help of disability writer Sara Luterman, the Black Disability Collective, and Autism advocate Jen White-Johnson, that are currently helping out Black people with disabilities, including those risking their lives to protest.
