VICTORY! Disability Rights are Civil Rights

April 14, 2014

Last week the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 in Austin did not include people with disabilities and the disability rights movement. The disability rights movement goes back five decades, it is frequently ignored by the traditional civil rights community.  The story of the integration of people with disabilities into our communities, is a story of civil and human rights that has included political and legal action as well as civil disobedience.

Transition Round Table

February 7, 2014

Planning a great future for youth with significant needs.  Instead of a resource fair, we have created a individualized round table to give you direct access to the key organizations in Boulder County that offer adult support and services for adults with signifi-cant disabilities as well as to staff from the school districts.  Our goal is to sit down with parents/caregivers and talk through your ques-tions and concerns. Each presenter will give a brief overview of their services, then open the floor to questions.  We are here for you!
