News from DAC NW

DAC NW part of Unity in the Community

Unity in the Community was launched in 1994 to showcase Spokane’s diversity and to bring the entire community together based on respect, trust and collaboration. It is about putting into action a “community building mindset” based on inclusion, equity, and valuing our community asset – human capital. 

People with disabilities are a part of this collaboration, as we represent 25% of the population. Disability Action Center NW is happy to again be a part of the Unity event and will host a booth in the Career and Education Fair. Other key areas include Health Fair, Early Learning Fair, Youth Fair and general vendors.  There will also be a Cultural Village and a stage with a diverse group of performers to keep you entertained.

DAC will be celebrating the 31st anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act and have information on the ADA, ways to increase accessibility in the community, and some history on the independent living movement. Free kites will be given out at their booth to both kids and adults. The kites represent being resilient and lifting each other up.

They will also be handing out back packs of school supplies to parents and children with disabilities. A major part of the last Unity in the Community was the giveaways of over $5000 worth of school supplies. 

Unity in the Community is based on a statement that represents “we are all in this together.”  Our goal at DAC NW is to provide resources that help people with disabilities remove barriers in their life so they can live independently in the area.
