Disability Rights, Education, Activism,
Are you interested in meeting other UWM students with disabilities, chronic illnesses, and mental health conditions? DREAM at UWM is open to culturally Deaf students and students with any type of disability, chronic illness, or mental health condition and their allies. We gather regularly to exchange information, promote self-advocacy, provide encouragement and explore resources.
Let Your Voice be Heard

Show up at 1:00 p.m. to help us develop our goals, create plans to accomplish those goals, maintain our student org status, and work on our advocacy and outreach efforts. Or, stop by after 2:00 p.m. to meet other students, make connections, and get support and encouragement from the group. Anyone who is interested is welcome to attend!
