2020 marks the 30th Anniversary of the passage of the landmark civil rights legislation, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) which was signed into law on July 26, 1990. Due to social distancing guidelines many celebrations have been cancelled or scaled back to virtual online events. Disability:IN North Carolina decided to get creative to mark this momentous occasion in an engaging manner. Drawing from the past, we invite our supporters, members, and stakeholders to experience a "Drive-In Theatre” and join us for an unforgettable ADA 30th Anniversary celebration!
Disability:IN North Carolina is hosting a screening of the award-winning documentary film,"Lives Worth Living" (directed by Eric Neudel and produced by Alison Gilkey) on July 23, 2020 from 6:00 pm to
10:15 pm at the Legrand Center in Shelby, NC. We are grateful to Wells Fargo and the Diverse Abilities Team Member Network, their Employee Resource Group (ERG) for being the corporate sponsors of this ADA celebration. The celebration will also feature guest speakers, musicians with disabilities, and food trucks! Participants will be able to enjoy an evening under the stars and celebrate the ADA from their cars or favorite lawn chair, in support of social distancing guidelines.
The registration fee is $20.00 per car (for people without disabilities) and $10.00 per car (if one or more passengers has a disability). We are also offering the opportunity for participants to donate a car/ticket for individuals with disabilities by increasing your registration to $30.00 (your fee of $30.00 includes your car/ticket of $20.00 and a discounted car/ticket for a person with disabilities to attend at no cost). The program of speakers and musicians will be listed in our next e-blast. Advance registration is required on our website. Register today and plan to join us on July 23, 2020 for an evening of shared celebration, uplifting messages and old-fashioned fun! (This is a family friendly alcohol-free event).
