The Independent

Give Local NRV 2020 Kickoff

2020 is the year to focus on vision – A vision the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) created 30 years ago on July 26, 1990.

The ADA Act was enacted to mandate equality and accessibility for individuals with disabilities. What better way to promote the 30th anniversary than to pay homage to what we stand for?  

To celebrate the ADA and hopefully bring more momentum to this year’s fundraiser, NRV DRC’S goal for Give Local is honoring the past 30 years of disability rights and laws while looking forward to 30 more years accessibility – which is why the amount of this year’s goal is meaningful $3,030.

Please help NRV DRC reach our goal by clicking on the ‘Give’ tab at the top of this page and donating to a great cause. We appreciate your support!
