ADA 30 Anniversary
30th Anniversary of the ADA 2020
Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
July 22, 2020 at 1:00 pm
BCIL and the City of Boston Mayor’s Commission on Persons with Disabilities are hosting a virtual ADA rally on Wednesday, July 22 at 1:00. Information is forthcoming on the platform on which you’ll log in.
We will proclaim disability rights with a focus on equity, diversity, and inclusion!
Among guest speakers is longtime disability rights activist Judy Heumann. Comments on the ADA have been lined up from Governor Baker, Congresswoman Pressley, Mayor Walsh, and Attorney General Healey, among others.
To help bring us all together we are mailing out ADA 30 T-shirts and fill-in-the-blank civil rights signs to interested people to post to social media with the hashtag #ADA30Boston. To have a shirt sent to you (and your family), please fill out the form on this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ADA30BostonTshirts. Get your shirt while supplies last.
CART and ASL will be available at the event. For additional accommodation requests email email@example.com or contact Jessica Doonan at 617-635-3682 or Jessica Podesva at firstname.lastname@example.org or 978-893-8100.
