Now is your chance as a blind or visually impaired person to gather with others concerned about local public policy. Attend the 7th Annual Disability Capitol Action Day. This is a great opportunity to meet likeminded people and speak out about issues such as current budget cutbacks to disability services or accessibility concerns you may have as a blind or visually impaired pedestrian.
Go to Capitol Action Day on May 26, 2010, in Sacramento, CA!

Details: Disability Capitol Action Day is one of the largest cross-disability events in our country. This year, on May 26th, 2010, the Disability Action Coalition hosts the 7th annual Disability Capitol Action Day in alliance with the California In-Home Supportive Services Consumer Alliance (CICA). CICA will offer a free advocacy training session on May 25, 2010, at the Sacramento Library. Registration for the event and training can be found at www.disabilityactioncoalition.org.
Join in solidarity on May 26 to recognize the 20th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, our civil rights act, on the west lawn of the Capitol. Despite the ongoing state budget threat to our rights and independence, we can join forces and educate the Legislature on what Californians with disabilities need in order to remain in their own homes and in the community.
