When: July 26th from 12noon to 1pm 
Where: Zoom https://us02web.zoom.us/s/88220323396 or watch our Facebook live stream @CCDC.CO.
 
This year we will award one significant honoree (to be announced in June) and show a premiere of our video documentary titled “Our Resilient Community” highlighting Coloradans with all types of disabilities as resilient and positively contribute to our communities despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. 
 
This CCDC produced documentary visits a cast of incredible individuals statewide that were able to adapt and pivot into roles specifically to support others during the pandemic and human rights upheaval. They braved the economic/racial inequities, fear and uncertainty presented by COVID-19 to motivate their communities to keep moving forward in solidarity.
 
Our documentary will also be a featured broadcast on PBS12! Check out the broadcast schedule here

Colorado Cross-Disability Coalition (CCDC) is the premier organization in Colorado advocating for disability rights. Our mission is to advocate for social justice for people with all types of disabilities (what we call a cross-disability). We work with individuals, service providers, businesses, and government agencies to ensure that people with what we call cross-disability have equal rights and equal access. Cross-Disability means we all work together regardless of what our individual disabilities may be. We are run by and for people with all types of disabilities: from Down Syndrome to Cerebral Palsy, Spina Bifida, Autism, people with brain injuries, people with mental illness, those who are blind or deaf, and much more. Our arms, our hearts, and our services are open wide. We know those of us with disabilities have a lot to offer.

Our motto is “Nothing About Us Without Us.”

We ensure physical structures are compliant and policies and procedures decrease barriers. We seek compliance with the ADA and help others to accomplish the same. To secure our services for training or consultation, contact our Executive Director Julie Reiskin at jreiskin@ccdconline.org or by calling 303-839-1775. To volunteer in the fight for disability rights, contact our Director of Community Organizing Dawn Howard at dhoward@ccdconline.org or by calling 303-839-1775. Please be aware we do not accept volunteers or interns for our legal programs.
