Intersectionality by Sylvia Duckworth

Starbridge is a nonprofit based in Rochester, NY, and partners with people who have disabilities and their families to achieve success in education, employment, and healthy living. Since our founding more than 60 years ago, we have partnered with and fought for the rights of people with disabilities to have full access to the ideals set forth in the Declaration of Independence: life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for all.

Disability intersects with every identity, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, age, creed, sexuality or religion. Diversity and Inclusion and Equity are core values to our organization. We are committed to ensuring that we are welcoming to people of all identities and we strive to ensure fairness and justice in all matters.
