ADA 30th anniversary

Dear Friend of Disability Community,

On July 26, 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was signed into law and discrimination against people with disabilities became illegal. In 1980, The Western New York Independent Living Project, Inc. opened its doors at 3108 Main Street and began providing programs and services for all people with disabilities throughout WNY.  With all the services provided throughout the years, we have reached a time to Celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the ADA becoming a law!

Therefore, Western New York Independent Living, Inc. and many community organizations will be celebrating this important occasion on July 26, 2020 at Canalside, Buffalo NY. In recognition of this and to raise awareness, WNY Independent Living, Inc. as a family of agencies, along with many community partners will be hosting the celebration. During this celebration, we will be holding WNY Independent Living's Fifth Disability Pride Parade and Festival in downtown Buffalo, starting right behind City Hall at 10:30 a.m., followed by the festival at Canalside at 11:30 a.m.

Admission is free and open to all persons with disabilities. WNY Independent Living, Inc. and our community partners expect over 1,000 participants and have many local agencies collaborating with this event.
