The Civil Rights Education and Enforcement Center (CREEC) has two principal projects, the Accessibility Project and the Immigration Detention Accountability Project.

The Accessibility Project fights with urgency to make real the promises of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) – that people with disabilities must have equal access. CREEC educates businesses, government entities, the disability community, and their allies about the legal protections guaranteed by the ADA and similar laws. We also engage in negotiation and individual and impact litigation when necessary to address disability rights violations.

The purpose of the Immigration Detention Accountability Project (IDAP) is to protect the constitutional and civil rights of immigrants in ICE detention. To that end, CREEC fights to ensure non-citizens are adequately and humanely treated and are not discriminated against on the basis of disability. CREEC does this through class action litigation, direct representation, and serving as an educational resource to the greater legal community, immigrant community, and their allies.
