DAC Creates Awareness for the ADA

Staff at our Moscow office hosted a touchless, drive thru event on August 26th, thirty days from the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act. After decorating 50 rocks with ADA inspired art, they were hid around Moscow to highlight accessibility features in the community – like accessible playgrounds, schools, public restrooms, city hall and the police station, and more. Those that found them brought the rocks to our event to exchange them for a free t-shirt. (if you missed out, call us and see if we still have some in your size!) We served 100 hot dog lunches and also gave out personal hand sanitizer and masks for our upcoming mask decorating contest. (You can still get a mask too!) Snap a photo of you in your decorated mask and email it to us to be entered to win prizes.

The real goals of the event was to reach out to our community and let them know we are here and ready to provide services. We also want to educate everyone about the ADA and what it means to people with disabilities who want their independence. For many, this was in place before they were born. They may not understand the long civil and legal battles fought by advocates to gain those rights. And they need to know there is still so much to do.

Moscow has been stellar in making changes for accessibility as they can. Whenever a remodel or change is in the works, they include the best the ADA has to offer. From new curb cuts across the city, ramps, accessible parking, offering ASL, Braille signage, they are working to make Moscow a welcoming city.

Our other offices are working on ADA celebrations too! Stay tuned for more info…
