Disability Rights Rhode Island (DRRI) is the independent federally mandated Protection and Advocacy (P&A) System for the state of Rhode Island.
We are part of a national network of P&A agencies created by Congress, existing in every state and territory, to help secure and advance the rights of people with disabilities.
Our mission is to assist Rhode Islanders with differing abilities in their efforts to achieve full inclusion in society and to exercise their civil and human rights through the provision of legal advocacy.
Our services include individual representation including litigation to protect rights or secure benefits, self-help information, education on priority legal issues, and systems change advocacy.
PLEASE NOTE: DRRI will remain open during the COVID-19 Crisis. We are not accepting walk-ins at this time but our Intake is fully operational.
We provide information, referral, advice, and in select cases, legal representation for disability-related issues. View our Getting Help page for more information.
Monday thru Friday
9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
