This page contains resources for people in
need of leads. I can't vouch for the entirety of any individual site
or whether they can help you, but some of them have been helpful to
me. Although the majority of sites listed here are "progressive" I
don't mean to espouse any particular political ideology. These are
sites I came across which had some merit or worth to me so I listed
them here for anyone who like myself is searching for help. It is in
no firm order as I add links where I find them, or they find me. If
nothing else I hope you can contact someone who can put you in touch
with someone else. Good luck.

ADVOCACY, INC. (Texas)
Advocacy, Inc. adheres to these guiding principles in all activities to protect and advance the rights of Texans with disabilities:
* All people have worth and dignity.
* People with disabilities are people whose basic human needs are no different from those of all people, and as such share with all people basic human, legal and civil rights.
* People with disabilities have the right to freedom from abuse, neglect, exploitation, discrimination and isolation.
* Children with disabilities have a right to full inclusion in all aspects of their communities, including the right to grow up in a family and the right to integrated day care and education.
* People with disabilities have the right to full access to and inclusion in all aspects of community life where they can exercise their full rights and responsibilities.
* People with disabilities have a right to legal representation and due process of law before any legal rights are restricted.
* People with disabilities should speak and act for themselves, be self-determining, represent their own interests, and make decisions and take risks based on their own goals and values. Anyone who would interfere with these rights to self-autonomy and personal choice must do so only after being granted legal authority, subject to judicial review, to act on behalf of that person, and only after the person termed disabled has had meaningful notice and opportunity to challenge the appointment of a substitute decision-maker.
* People with disabilities are entitled to protection from employment discrimination and equal access to employment in community integrated settings.
* People with disabilities have a right to health and human services that will meet basic needs and will provide them with the tools and supports necessary to achieve equality of opportunity, employment, independent living, economic and social self-sufficiency. These services and supports should be accessible, culturally relevant, customized to their needs, flexible to changing circumstances, and provided in their community.
* Individuals with disabilities have the right to information in an accessible format, language and manner that is culturally relevant, and which allows them to have options and make informed choices.
* Advocacy efforts must be sensitive and responsive to the unique needs of individuals from diverse ethnic, racial, and cultural backgrounds, and must be accessible and reasonably available.
* When a decision or meaningful choice cannot be expressed by a person with a disability or when consent is not available from or provided by the person with the disability or legally authorized substitute, the advocate will act to safeguard and advance the human, legal, and civil rights of the person with the disability in a way that does not limit the person's options for choice.

Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated
Fraternities/Sororities Organization_Description: Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated was founded January 16, 1920 and began as an idea conceived by five coeds at Howard University in Washington D.C. These five women dared to depart from the traditional coalitions for black women and sought to establish a new organization predicated on the precepts of Scholarship, Service, Sisterly Love and Finer Womanhood. Zeta Phi Beta Sorority was founded on the simple belief that sorority elitism and socializing should not overshadow the real mission for progressive organizations - to address societal mores, ills, prejudices, poverty, and health concerns of the day. It was the ideal of the Founders that the Sorority would reach college women in all parts of the country who were sorority minded and desired to follow the founding principles of the organization. Founder Viola Tyler was often quoted to say "[In the ideal collegiate situation] there is a Zeta in a girl regardless of race, creed, or color, who has high standards and principles, a good scholarly average and an active interest in all things that she undertakes to accomplish."
A fraternal organization dedicated to academic success, social interaction, and community service.

There is an internal organization called The
Office of Diversity and Equity at UCONN which conducts internal
investigations of matters involving harassment, discrimination and
abuse on campus, but I cannot reccomend them. It was my experience
with them that they were there merely to function as a buffer
against bad press and lawsuits for the school. They dismissed my
matter and attempted to sweep it under the rug and I have been told
by lawyers familiar with the school that this is typical at UCONN.
It is amazing that a school with so many minority contributions in
so many areas like the mens and women's basketball teams, the
football team, departments like mathematics and the sciences and so
many other areas that when a minority or woman on campus experiences
problems they are treated like second class citizens. It is truly
shameful of UCONN and deserves to be investigated further.
