What are you doing on Wednesday, May 20th?
Join us in Sacramento for the 12th annual Disability Capitol Action Day (DCAD)!
DCAD is one of the nation’s largest and most diverse cross-disability annual days of unity. Recognizing the important issues facing people with disabilities and their allies and in honor of the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, DCAD’s 2015 theme is “ADA – Today, Tomorrow, Forever!.”
People from every part of California will come together in solidarity to share resources, talk to their legislative speakers, and listen to renowned speakers, Assembly member Kansen Chu and Senator Dr. Richard Pan. We will also discuss key important legislative issues directly impacting the disability community.
Canine Companions for Independence will be there – with their very popular puppies in training – to showcase their services.
