Longmont, Colo. − The Center for People with Disabilities (CPWD), played proud host to the Americans with Disabilities Legacy Bus Tour in celebration of the 25th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

People in attendance  had the opportunity to learn more about challenges for people with disabilities in our community and how the ADA promotes equal access for all our citizens.

The ADA Bus brought educational displays and information including:

  • The history of self-advocacy and the importance of self-determination
  • A “Because of the ADA ______” booth where you can post your thoughts and photos
  • The history of the “Road to Freedom” Tour

The “Road to Freedom” ADA Bus, which traveled to 48 states in 2007, is once again travelling across country to raise awareness about the ADA. CPWD has been selected as one of the stops in Colorado. In the coming months, the bus will traverse the states, ending its journey of bringing awareness on the steps of the Capitol, on July 26, 2015, the 25th anniversary of the ADA.

The mission of CPWD is to provide resources, information and advocacy to assist people with disabilities in overcoming barriers to independent living.

The vision of CPWD is to build a community of resources, services, caregivers and consumers that collectively form a foundation of support for independent living. We encourage an integrated community that equally welcomes all members, all disabilities and cross-disabilities.
