Disability is Powerful and Beautiful!

Disability Equity Center (DEC) is a disability justice nonprofit organization in the mid-Willamette Valley of Oregon. DEC is made for disabled people by disabled people. Together in community, DEC connects, empowers, amplifies, and celebrates people with disabilities.

We are a community education and resource center for disabled people and their allies throughout the Willamette Valley.
