Americans with Disabilities Act 30th Anniversary March Against Hate

July 26, 2020 marks the 30th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. This critical civil rights law prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life, including jobs, schools, transportation, and all public and private places that are open to the general public. Join us for an accessible march to continue discussion within our community on Black Lives Matter, racial injustices, systemic racism, and police reform.

We will be creating a mural from 11 am – 2 pm. No art experience needed! Let your creative mind flow and paint your thoughts on the Past, Present, and Future of Black Lives Matter and our community. Sign making supplies will also be available.

From 2-5 pm we will participate in a 3 mile round trip march. The art build will be fully accessible for all to participate. The march route will be flat, with many planned stops for discussion, speakers, rest, and conversation.

Sight guides and American Sign Language interpreters will be present as well as a Disability Support Team and medics. Assistive mobility devices may be available for use during the march. Please reach out to the organizers with any request for accommodations.

Masks are STRONGLY encouraged and maintaining 6 feet of distance is requested by the organizers. Masks will be available for those who need.
