The Driving Force Community

The Driving Force online community is the first and only community to unite all voices from the mobility disability space to create greater understanding of how we can work toward a more mobility-inclusive world. You don’t have to be a driver to be a part of our movement — anyone living with a mobility disability and their caregivers are welcome to join.

Members will be invited to participate in surveys and polls so that we can collect your experiences and challengers, ensure they are heard and inform actions that drive mobility inclusion. Come back often to read the latest news about how BraunAbility and The Driving Force are driving social change.
