Activists from around the country took to the streets on Tuesday with the National Council on Independent Living's March and Rally at the Capitol in Washington, DC. Rooted in Rights was there in solidarity to support independent living.
See what the marchers had to say:
“At a time when so many doubted that people with disabilities could contribute to our economy or support their families, the Americans with Disabilities Act assumed they could, and guided the way forward. Today, as we reflect on the courage and commitment of all who made this achievement possible, let us renew our obligation to extend the promise of the American dream to all our people, and let us recommit to building a world free of unnecessary barriers and full of deeper understanding of those living with disabilities.” —President Obama on the 26th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act: go.wh.gov/XjMMtj
