The whole reason we are having a virtual ADA Celebration is the impossibility of holding something safely, in public on or near July 26th. It was hoped that 65 days of events would give the pandemic enough time to level out and public events would be possible again on September 28th. While many communities are opening up, and many people are discovering protest as a form of civil disobedience for the first time in their lives, public gatherings remain unsafe for people with high-risk health concerns. This impacts the disability community disproportionately. So it is decided. it would be disastrous if we held an event that put so many of our community at risk or left out. Join us virtually and safety in celebrating everything disability is and will become while remembering the struggle it has taken to get here.
