Parents meet, share information, and advocate for their children. Many of the thriving disability charities, such as Easter Seals, United Cerebral Palsy, and Muscular Dystrophy were founded by parents. Children form friendships in schools, places of worship, camps, and clubs, and as adults, they do the same thing. Historically, such affinities have been the seedbed of transformative political and social movements.
