We marched for the Americans with Disabilities Act the week of March 10 to March 17, 1990. The cherry blossoms were in full bloom in Washington, DC. We marched with thousands of others, people with disabilities and their supporters–it was an awesome time.

I would like for this community to have a strong understanding of how to get themselves from the consumer side of things to the director side of things–and for people to go from being an everyday resident to being a person who’s at the table contributing to decision-making in their environment.

In 1969, my parents proudly became homeowners after the Fair Housing Act, signed on April 11, 1968, prohibited housing discrimination based on race, color, religion, and national origin.
