People with disabilities
People with chronic illness
People with mental health conditions
People with pre-existing conditions
Older adults and seniors

We are everywhere.
In your family, in your school, in your workplace, in your local corner store.

Yet, too often, our needs, our dreams and our lives are not given the dignity that we all are worthy of.
Let 2019 be the year when all Californians have a stake in advancing the civil rights, independence and freedom for people with disabilities and older adults.

Join Disability Action Coalition and the California Alliance for Retired Americans on Thursday, May 23, 2019 from 10am-3pm for the first-ever Disability & Aging Capitol Action Day in Downtown Sacramento. The day includes a resource fair, educational rally, unity march and legislative meetings.

Grounded in cross-generational solidarity, we are mobilizing to the capitol, exercising our power, and informing California’s elected officials about what matters most.

 

We will be stronger with you alongside us. Will you join us?
