NBP Advocates for Braille Literacy
ADA Celebration Day is a yearly event held each July in Boston that celebrates the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Each year, the event honors a local organization that has made an impact on accessibility or inclusion in Boston. ADA Celebration Day is an event for people of all ages and all abilities to come together and celebrate a milestone in the disability community.
Usually featuring a speaking program, social events, music, food, and a community resource fair, ADA Celebration Day was developed for people of all ages and all abilities to come together to celebrate a milestone in the disability community.
