Advocate

Senator John Kerry says it best: "Values are not just words. Values are what we live by. They're about the causes that we champion and the people we fight for." At The Price Center, the causes we champion and the people we fight for are those facing the challenges of disability. We value the important work of Advocacy and invite you to join us.
