Welcome to Chicagoland DPOCC!

Welcome to the website for the Chicagoland Disabled People of Color Coalition, also known as Chicagoland DPOCC! There, you can follow updates on our monthly meetings, social events, self-advocacy campaigns, media posts, press releases/position statements, news in the disability community of color, blog posts and much more. We will ensure to promote disability pride in communities of color in the Chicagoland area, and even globally, while we also bring awareness to the issues that we faces as disabled, autistic, Deaf, and neurodivergent people of color.

This group is sponsored by University of Illinois at Chicago’s Institute on Disability and Human Development, and we are also affiliated with the Illinois Self-Advocacy Alliance.
