This summer, Independence, Inc., will be celebrating our 20th Anniversary and the 25th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act. As part of this celebration, we are collecting short essays on the impact of our organization and the ADA on the lives of the people we serve and the communities we live in.
We would like to invite anybody who is interested to submit a sort essay for this project. We are looking for written reflections on the following two questions:
1) What impact has the ADA had on your life?
2) How has Independence, Inc. made your life or your community better?
The essays are 250-400 words long.
Selected essays will be used in a 20/25 Book that will be used to tell the story of Disability Rights in our area.
We would like to invite each of you to submit an essay to firstname.lastname@example.org, no later than 5/26/15.
All interested parties are invited to submit an essay.
