An integral part of the Coalition's mission is to help improve services and make more opportunities available to children with disabilities and their families. We share our knowledge and expertise with those involved in the public policy process and do so in pursuit of the Coalition’s Vision and Mission. Coalition members have agreed to advance our Vision and Mission in accordance with our Restrictions on Lobbying and Political Activities.

Non-profit organizations and organizations receiving funding through federal grants have legal restrictions regarding participating in lobbying and political activities. The Imagine Different Coalition is supported by the PEAL Center, a non-profit organization, using federal funds from the Pennsylvania Developmental Disabilities Council.  The Coalition and its members educate, advise, or inform policy-makers, however, the Coalition and its members acting on behalf of the Coalition, do not engage in lobbying or partisan political activities.
