The Washington Multicultural Services Link (WMSL) is a non-profit grassroots organization formed in 2020 by Black families with loved ones with disabilities, community members, and volunteers.
Washington Multicultural Services Link's (WMSL) mission is to empower and ensure quality of support services to African Diaspora families, especially individuals with disabilities, and health care needs.
... Our priorities are
To promote UNITY among Black people with disabilities, our families and our communities, to advance EQUITY within the disability movement and our communities, and to foster OPPORTUNITY for Black people with disabilities
Promoting access to education, training, health and employment as well as life long support in the community
Advocating for individuals with disabilities to have access to and participate in inclusion in their community
We believe by working in partnership and collaboration, there can be a greater impact through the pooling of skills, resources and knowledge and sharing of learning
A society where Black families with disabilities and special healthcare needs can equally participate and be valued in all aspects of community life.
