SO YOU THINK

THAT'S ILLEGAL

by Amy B. House

I was at this one website that talked about the civil rights movement of the disabled, and it talked about Justin Dart and how he made Independent Living accessible for a lot of people. He was there when the ADA got passed.
I remember where I was. I was watching the TV in my mom’s living room - and she had it on CNN for some reason, and I remember how proud I was that I fought for my rights to exist. Thank you, section 504.

STUDIO ARTISTS SEND SILENT PROTEST ORNAMENTS TO CAPITAL CHRISTMAS TREE LIGHTING

   

Governor Schwarzenegger and First Lady Maria Shriver hosted a tree lighting ceremony at the Capitol, ironically with the theme "The Season of Giving."

Artists from The Studio, in a silent protest, created a dozen ornaments that focused on the devastating budget cuts to people with disabilities this year and sent them to Sacramento to be hung on the 55 foot tree.

We hope the State gets the message.
