Mission Statement

Our mission is to increase opportunities and remove barriers for people with disabilities by facilitating full and equal participation in all aspects of life within the City of Revere. Our commission works toward compliance with Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act. With this in mind, the commission will help influence public policy by advising and working with all departments within the city on issues impacting persons with disabilities and their families, educating and informing all residents on disability issues and increasing opportunities for persons with disabilities to reach their maximum potential in independence, human development, productivity, and self-sufficiency.

Guiding Principles

Disability is a natural part of the human experience. The Commission on Disabilities operates on the premise that all people with disabilities are entitled to the opportunity to participate fully in society. We strive to ensure that all people live with justice, equity, freedom, dignity, privacy, economic self-sufficiency, and mental and physical health and well-being. We will listen respectfully and advocate when appropriate.
