Join us at the ADA Celebration on the Boston Common next week!
ADA 25 Boston Celebration Set for July 22nd on Boston Common
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is one of the most transformative civil rights laws in US history. Its mandate created equal access and opportunities for persons with disabilities. To commemorate the historic 25th anniversary of its signing, the ADA New England Center with cooperation of state, city and area organizations is proud to announce that the official 25th Anniversary recognition will occur on Wednesday, July 22nd from 11am – 3pm on the Boston Common.
This free family-friendly event is open to the public and will include dignitaries, celebrities, music, demonstrations, education booths, music, games and more. The theme of the event honor’s the tremendous achievements accomplished in the past 25 years to advance equality of opportunity for persons with disabilities, while rallying the public to forge ahead and take on new challenges. The event will start with a festive march around Boston Common kicked off by City of Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh.
“Much remains to be done to achieve full inclusion for all Americans with disabilities, but it is a different and better world today thanks to the first 25 years of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Meet the pioneers of the ADA as well as young advocates on the Common.” – Oce Harrison, Director of the New England Americans with Disabilities Act Center in Boston
