Glendive LIFTT office to mark ADA Anniversary on July 26

Living Independently for Today & Tomorrow (LIFTT) invites the community to join us on Wednesday, July 26 from Noon to 4 p.m. at the Glendive LIFTT office (120 S. Kendrick Avenue) for a celebration of the 33rd Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

The landmark bipartisan civil rights legislation, which marked the first time in history a nation put into law the concept that people with disabilities are first and foremost citizens entitled to the same rights, protections and access to their communities as non-disabled persons was signed into law by President George H.W. Bush in a White House ceremony on July 26, 1990.

LIFTT team members will be providing information on the history & legacy of the ADA as well as about the agencies’ programs and services which are designed to empower people with disabilities to break down the physical, bureaucratic, and cultural barriers that prevent them from being fully independent participants in their lives and communities.

The Crazy Asian’s Kitchen and Bully Burgers & Bites food trucks will be on-site with lunch for purchase and at 1 p.m. there will be Free ADA birthday cake and coffee courtesy of LIFTT.

Later at sunset, Love Like Justice will help LIFTT mark the ADA anniversary by lighting the historic Bell Street Bridge in LIFTT’s teal and orange colors.
