Nick's Crusade

In 2003, Nick Dupree made a major impact with his campaign to change Medicaid in his home state of Alabama (U.S.), so that he and others like him could continue living in the community and out of a nursing home, dubbed "Nick's Crusade."

 

Though he has worked hard, Nick realizes that he needs to find a new place to live safely and independently so that he can continue to work towards his goals as an individual and an activist for change in the disability community.

 

Learn more about his new campaign at Nick's Crusade : Project Freedom. Your thoughts and ideas are welcomed!
