Celebrate ADA 25 STL on Saturday, October 3 in Forest Park

ADA 25 STL is the St. Louis celebration of the 25th anniversary of passage of the Americans With Disabilities Act in 1990. Organized by Starkloff Disability Institute, ADA 25 STL is presented by Centene Corporation and in partnership with the Missouri History Museum and St. Louis’ disability community. 
 
The celebration will occur on October 3rd from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Forest Park featuring the Disability Rights Museum on Wheels, the ADA Legacy Tour Freedom Bus, live music, food trucks, vendors, and fun for the entire family. More information is available at www.ada25stl.org  or call Lori Becker at 314-588-7090.
 
The Americans With Disabilities Act ensures equal rights and opportunities for people with disabilities and protects against discrimination. The disability community has made great strides due to this landmark legislation, especially in increased access to education, health care, transportation, and housing. Approximately 57.8 million Americans have a disability, including 5.5 million disabled American veterans.
 
The festival will include a celebration march in Forest Park at 11 a.m. The Honorable Tony Coehlo, former U.S. Representative and chief sponsor of the ADA in the U.S. House of Representatives, will discuss employment as the “Next Big Step” for the disability community.   Regional corporate sponsors will staff tables where job seekers can network and leave their resumes with employers seeking qualified candidates with disabilities.

I have been involved with publishing and marketing for the past 32 years. I enjoy helping people find ways to share their voice. I have found ways to do this through the written word, articles and various media outlets. Area-Info.net is an avenue to help everyone have a voice who wants a voice. If you have questions about how you can have your voice heard, I would be happy to schedule a time to consult with you.
