News From DAC NW

Disability Action Center NW is a 501(c)3 non-profit advocacy center that has been in operation since 1990. They work for changes at the community, state, and national levels to remove physical, communication, and attitude barriers for people with disabilities. DAC NW has three offices located in Moscow, Lewiston and Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. They offer a variety of services from peer-to-peer independent living support, medical equipment exchange, help with self-advocacy, and access to assistive technology.

This fall DAC NW is partnering with Kenworthy Performing Arts Centre on a fundraising collaboration called “Life Happens on a Stage”. They are raising funds to purchase a sturdy, portable chair lift system for use to access the Kenworthy stage. This accessible stage lift can be made available for other events in the community like Artwalk or Rendevous in the Park to make sure these events meet ADA requirements for accessibility.

The fundraising campaign will run through March and end with a ribbon cutting ceremony on March 27, World Theater Day. As part of the campaign DAC NW and the Kenworthy will feature Reel Movie Mondays, a free movie screening held the first Monday of the month October through March. It will kick off with a Zombie Fest on October 2nd with a screening of the fun zombie film “Fido”. Films about accessibility and the importance of inclusion will be shown each month. Independent Living means that we demand the same choices and control in our everyday lives that our non-disabled brothers and sisters, neighbors and friends take for granted.

DAC NW has an extremely diverse board of directors and staff that are eager to form this partnership with the community. Life happens on a stage and everyone should be able to be a part of it!
