Welcome Message

Welcome to one of America’s most accessible cities. Let us provide you with insight and information regarding the City’s services, programs and activities.
The Denver Office of Disability Rights (DODR) is an integral part/division of the Agency for Human Rights & Community Relations. One of the primary purposes of the DODR is to coordinate and spearhead the City of Denver’s efforts to ensure compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Our role is to ensure that all City services and programs are accessible to people with disabilities. The DODR also provides informal guidance and resources as it relates to accessibility and ADA to the private sector.


"20 Years After ADA, Accessiblity Remains An Evolutionary Process" (July 26, 2010).
