Arc of the Universe

People with Disabilities at a bill hearingPeople with Disabilities waiting for a bill hearing

“The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.” ~ Martin Luther King Jr.

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”  ~ Margaret Mead

The quotes above are apt for the power we showed two weeks ago as many of us in the disability community contributed to informing our Senators that a change was needed in SB 19-238, Many individuals negotiated with SEIU, called other CCDC members, and /or showed up at the capitol for the hearing in the Senate Health and Human Services Committee.

Building power as a community of people with disabilities and family members requires all of us to do many small tasks. Calling, writing legislators, showing up for legislative committees, going to stakeholder meetings,  talking to friends and family members about disability rights. Each activity may appear too small to make a difference.  When we each complete small tasks we move the arc closer toward justice. Justice which will free ourselves and others to contribute to our communities and to build a more equitable  State with supports and services for Coloradans who have disabilities.

Thank you to each CCDC member who contributed to nudging the arc of the universe toward justice.
