We unite and empower the international spinal cord injury community to cure paralysis through advocacy, education, and support for research.
Every person has equal access to treatments that will restore health and independence after spinal cord injury.
We hold ourselves to the highest standard of honesty and transparency in all of our actions.
We are open-minded and imaginative in the pursuit of our mission.
We believe shared knowledge is the key to accelerating progress toward cures.
We serve everyone who shares our mission.
We are focused and energetic in the face of obstacles and disappointments.
We lead our community on a path toward responsible self-determination.
We embrace and cultivate diversity, equity, and inclusion for our Board, staff, volunteers, and community. In particular, we value the full participation in programs, policy, and decision-making by persons living with a spinal cord injury/disease (including family members). We also strive to maintain gender balance in our recruitment and hiring. The composition of our Board and staff reflects these values.
