The City of Worcester’s 25th ADA Anniversary Celebration


Hello! My name is Joan Philip. I am the Director of the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Independent Living Services Program at the Center for Living & Working, or
CLW. I have a very exciting announcement! The city of Worcester will be hosting a 25th Anniversary Celebration for the ADA, the
Americans with Disabilities Act. It was enacted in 1990 and now 25 years
later it’s time to celebrate all that ADA has accomplished. So come join
the city of Worcester and area social service agencies, educators, advocates, family and friends for this big celebration. This event will take place at Union Station, which is at 2 Washington Square, in Worcester. This big celebration will be on Saturday, July
25th from noon to 4 pm. And this event will include and
showcase local talent and resources. There will also be entertainment, interactive exhibits, different activities, educational
resources and food and dance. This is an event you don’t want to miss. The event’s lead sponsors include, The
Center for Living & Working and Seven Hills Foundation in
affiliation with the city of Worcester. Now you may be wondering why the
Americans with Disabilities Act is so important and why we should celebrate it. The ADA is a Civil Rights law that
prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities
and Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing individuals in all areas of public life including
jobs, schools, transportation and all public and
private places that are open to the general public. The purpose of the law is to make sure that all people have
equal rights, opportunities and access. So these past 25 years have been so successful that we want to celebrate that and honor the ongoing commitment and
support for individuals with disabilities and
Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing individuals. So please come! Bring your family and
your friends, your coworkers…. Anyone is welcome and it will be fully
accessible to all. CART reporters and interpreters will be
provided. There’s no reservations required. I look forward to seeing you there!
