Mark your calendars for a virtual ADA 30th anniversary event!
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: 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 firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Jessica Doonan at 617-635-3682.

Things have been wild and seemingly out of control for the past few months. First we had COVID-19 and its particular impact on people with disabilities. Now we have the senseless murder of George Floyd which has sparked countless protests around the world. Through it all, I want you to know that CORD stands with you. All of you.
Yes, CORD is a disability rights organization. It is also a civil rights organization. We believe in equality and justice for all citizens and we condemn the violence that has been visited upon people of color in this country.
CORD will continue its fight for equal rights for everyone. If you need us, we are here.
With Peace and Love,
CEO ... See MoreSee Less
