The Time is NOW!

Thank you for joining us for the 11th annual Disability Capitol Action Day (DCAD) on May 21, 2014. DCAD is one of the nation’s largest and most diverse cross-disability annual days of unity.

People from every corner of California came to Sacramento to march in solidarity, share resources and hear from passionate speakers. We also engaged in discussions about important issues like In Homes Supportive Services, building accessible communities for all and the potential of the disability vote in the 2014 elections.

The DCAD 2014 Legislative Sponsor was Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson (SD 19, Santa Barbara). She is a well known supporter of environmental, healthcare, aging and disability issues. Participants were excited to hear Sen. Jackson rally the crowd with great energy as she did last year at DCAD 2013.

For over a decade now DCAD has continue to grow and bring the disability community and our allies together for our day at the State Capitol. This year we welcomed nearly 1500 people and the Disability Resource Fair engaged over 45 exhibitors to share accessible resources, educational tools and products.
